    Quick update on the process for those interested... HR says written test scores should be mailed out early Aug although that will only be scores. Said we should hear something mid to late Aug if we are moving on in the process.

    Heard 3rd hand that about 400 people applied and they looking to take around 20 to the academy this cycle.

    You know some people aren't "demoted" but take VOLUNTARY reductions in rank. It happens all the time
    Thanks for the clarification. It is good that she did not get demoted for that incident, although the situation surrounding her reassignment left a real sour taste in my mouth for the Chief of the agency.

    I wouldn't get in too big of a hurry, I heard this process won't be starting the academy any time in 2014. I could be off on that, but this is the last information I heard.

    DMPD is a large agency by Midwest standards and they are a political organization. For the most part, they have a lot of good officers on the department. The only information I have on the Lavorato incident comes from local media, which is notoriously unreliable and biased so I will not Monday-morning-quarterback the chief's decision.

    The background takes the same amount of time if you are working for a PD or not. They have a checklist and packet they have to complete. Look for about a month or two to get the background complete. The investigators have several to do at once.

    How long does the background generally take if you already work for a PD?
