    My father-in-law is a 15 year guy there. when he started the starting pay was 24k. They got a huge increase because the surrounding suburbs were paying twice the salary. Now clearing 100k. He says new officers average 16k in o.t. You'd be alright, but TIRED AS HECK! At least until you get some seniority.

    They do, but look what they start their PO's at...if you look at the NYPD Recruit website it says 43,000 starting in 2009...u know what 43K can get u in NYC? A Studio Dump in a bad area...The NYPD hook is that u get a FULL pension after 20 years. What I HEAR NYPD does is run there academies like shifts, people go 8AM-4pm, 4pm to 12AM and 12AM to 8AM. But what I also heard that if you are not from NY, good luck getting on without juice, try to learn the streets of NYC if your not from there....it will take u years!

I did not continue with CPD and am glad that I did not, because of all the waiting and b.s. that goes with the department. All that wait that CPD puts the aplicants through is actualy hurting the department, because some get picked up by other departments, like me for example. My advice to all the CPD aplicants that are constantly writing here about "How long is it going to take?" "Did anyone receive any notice yet?" etc. is don't put all of your eggs in one basket and apply at other departments. CPD is losing alot of good aplicants due to the long hiring process and look what kind of aplicants they are left with: gangbangers, drug dealers, etc. Just my 2 cents, sorry if I've offended any CPD officers here, I'm sure you're fine coppers and stay safe.

    Just had to add...yes some of us are a little foolish for waiting almost three years for this department to decide if they want to hire us. However, I think the wait is worth it, and to all the guys in the same situation I am, just want to say, it might be woth the wait... Think about it. the suburaban police departments may hire you faster, but that is the only "real" benefit compared to the CPD. The city does have its problems, but the oppertunity to advance in the career is scores above any suburban department. Patrolman, tactial officer, detective, mounted, marine, helocopter, and the list goes on and on. I believe there is also something called the "Fugitive reclamation team" or something to that effect. The point is if you are lucky in a suburban department you may retire as a sergeant. In the CPD if you do well, you may be off better. Whats more, you may not have to make a career of the CPD, once you secure your degree, and you have a good record, you might be more desireable to the three letter organizations...because of the experience of course. What would you want? An outstandind Chicago cop with a degree, who has seen and delt with every LE situation, or a cop with the same qualificatioins from Happyville IL?....I should be a recruiter!

    Polygraph what?

    BRIGHTON PARK | Off-duty officer killed himself, shot his children, police say!

    Taken from todays Suntimes. So much for the Psychological. So sad that he reacted on the kids. If you are that ****ed shoot the wife not the kids, that is innocent blood spilled for no reason.

    So why does CPD had psychologists? Shouldn't have they found something wrong with this guy in the tests. Maybe he wasn't military so they did not drill him with questions, and thought "hey he will be able to handle stress unlike these military guys that are ready to shoot things up".

    Contrary to the pschologists belief, military members have rules of engagment to live by and follow. They have to know if and when to fire, they have to know who is shooting at them and where they are at. It is not just a free for all shoot em up and ask questions later. You have to have positive contact.

    Well I guess I am just venting here! Maybe cause two innocent kids just got killed by an unstable man for no reason other than being his kids with the woman he was divorceing.

    And our current president did cocaine!

    Not to sound like ignorant, but what is wrong if a person appeals the decision. For many years in Philly, good folks appealed their poly decision only to either have the civil service list expire or go through more bs. The poly does not measure truthfullness but rather algorithms to see if a person is trying to be deceitfull.

    I know many folks who failed a poly who work as cops.

    They went on talking about this in the paper yesterday.
    God forbid they hire someone that experimented with marijuana in high school and is honest about it!
    These people are retarded.

    Sounds like the NYPD with their gangbangers, perps and mopes they are hiring. The only thing with NYPD is the waiting process from the test to being sworn in is a total of 6 to 8 months. Really short

Still in school, so I can apply to other depts. You mean to tell me that if every cop on now was polygraphed, they would pass?
    Read a little further, like the next paragraph. It states that Government agencies, and by extension Law Enforcement are exempt and therefore cannot be sued. Misconception about the polygraph, just about anyone can pass a polygraph, even current cops can pass a poly. It measures truthfulness, it doesnt measure or judge what you did it is simply a tool to measure your truthful responses. If you are asked did you steal or did you have sex with animals and you answer truthfully then you pass the test. It looks for patterns of deception. The reality about a polygraph is that it is not telling the truth that fails you it is the gravity of whatever act you committed that axes you or if you are deceptive in your responses.
