    • So I had my physical today. Lots of people there (maybe 60 or more). I passed so I hope this is a sign of the rest of my app process. They didn't give me any instructions so I guess I should call recruitment on Monday to see where I stand with my app date?

      • I was there today for the fitness test and passed as well. Hope they have a class after this Oct 2 too. From what I hear we got done with our test pretty fast. Started around 8 finished with our run a little before 12. Good luck to everyone in the process.

          when on the machine, they do one eye at a time, then both eyes. i don't know whether you need to have 20/20 in each eye, but you do need 20/20 with both eyes. corrected i tested like 20/10 and my optometrist said my prescription is not even right.

          if you fail, they make you do it second time, really throwing you a major bone. they have you stand in a hallway facing a chart with the letters on it. then they have you take off your glasses or contacts and go back in the hallway to do the same thing. you only have to be able to read the second line to have 20/100 and pass. They must have thought i was stupid by not reading the second line while i had just read it with my contacts in. i was being too f'in honest. i had a buddy of a buddy mine tell me he failed the machine test and then did the chart test in the hallway and remembered the chart and passed and is now a cop.
          good luck

          • An interesting development happened today. Got a letter in the mail today from The Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. The F.B.I. rejected my fingerprints, could be because I don't really have any left. This is do to that I use my hands alot at work, anyway who took them when I handed in my application, told me originally that they may be rejected. I have to have her submit a new set of them or after 60 days face a fee. I have to show this to my B.I. when I see him on Tuesday.

            • They could have another class after the Oct one, like someone said they may push it, the city is down police officers and i know it seems wrong to cut public safety but they still do, My buddy was hired by Philly as a cop and they had 8 officers die last year and they still threatened to layoff a 1000 cops and 200 fireman, my point is the city government can do what ever they want. Baltimore dont seem as messed up as philly but who knows what the lovely mayor will do,(bc we all know the integrity she has) but recruitment will keep telling everybody that theyre hiring untill they get word to say not any more, crap changes everyday, I dont want to sound harsh at all, im just trying to let everybody look at all angles of the situation, but good luck to everyone and if i hear anything ill let everyone know.

                Baltimore got federal stimulus money right? The thing with federal stimulus money is that once you recieve it, you have to use it exactly for what they wanted you to use it for. And if you don't spend it, you will never get it again.

                    Yes, they received some federal cash which is to be used for the hiring of 50 officers I believe. They have 1 year to use the funds ( July 2010 ) and if not, they have to return the cash. Keep in mind, who is going to throw away free money ( There are towns that did this ). They only time you get banned from receiving the funds is when you mismanage the money and can not pay it back. The ban is usually 3 years. Amtrak, Newark, and Camden could tell you about it.

                      • thats great and all that we received money to hire 50 new officers... that only covers 1 class, though. what happens when the city cant afford to keep those 50 new officers hired? layoffs happen. the money to keep 50 officers hired for 1 year is about ten times the amount of stimulus money. they have layed off academy classes before and will probably do it again.
