  • Atlanta Job Fair

    Just for anyone interested. Thought I'd post that APD is having another job fair.

    Here's the info:

    I'm thinking of coming down for the job fair. How political is Atlanta? (I've recently left a very political small department in TN). From what I've heard, Atlanta doesn't have a very good reputation, but I don't put much stock in rumors, especially across state lines... I would love to work for a larger department with more going on and I would especially like to hear from those actually working there. I've heard about the furloughs already...

      I do know they have a pretty heated mayor race going on. The mayor now can't run again so it's open tee time. I like Atlanta every time I have been there, and never had any dealings with APD. During a mayor race there all kinds of things happening.

        Check out www.wsbtv.com for video of Atlanta mayor debate. Looks like Atlanta will be getting a new police chief, too.
        Lets hold hands and sing "We are the world."

                None of the Factors that are on the website apply to me but Im still wondering will they throw a wild card in and say because of credit or Moving violation ill be dqed.. My background was approved with Dekalb but I guess the new chief was goin over the Recruits that was approved for the upcoming academy and pulled the candidates whose background he didnt like.. I have to say i was very devastated to get that call today after being told everything was a go. I was dqed because of a open container citation i received two years ago.As we all Know the process isn't a easy one and I pretty much had completed the process and the rug was pulled out at the end.
