    Thanks, but that was no my reason for posting that comment you are speaking of. I was simply stating no one commented about it. In other threads that I am active in, people have said something about their wonderful experience that day with the polygraph. It isn't everyone's favorite part of the process, that's all.

    Like I said in my previous statement, I have taken one before and would not divulge any pertinent info about it, nor would I expect anyone to do the same.

    • the polygraph for BPD is the same as any other PD that i have applied for, an old fashion machine. The one i took for the feds was on a computer however. Do not wait for an electric response either from recruiting. i took the questioneer online and i got a response 8 months later while already in the academy, your better off calling and speaking to a live person....do not leave a message.

        Can you guys run stuff over them and just not write reports or is it just a dead box sitting upfront.

        I could see myself getting rather upset when MVA takes forever to respond...but to have a dead box all the time must be annoying. Does everything go through the dispatcher? Like running someone or getting calls?
        most of them dont turn on at all, so they basically are just trays. most of everything is called through dispatch and they run ncic/mva and such. its very time consuming, especially when the radio is tied up.

          That's ashame and IMHO needs to be fixed. You can not expect a police force to function with their hands being tied. That's ashame and someone on the city council needs to take note. Think of how many more clearances/arrests would come if you guys had atleast MVA/NCIC at your fingertips.

            • Called recruiting today. The out of state testing is said to be the weekend of Sept. 12th, but it is not set in stone. Time to stretch these hamstrings, the sit and reach is my downfall.

                Yep, the sit and reach can be the downfall of the otherwise somewhat fit, especially if you are a tall person like myself. A few folks did not pass this part of the PAT when I went through the four day out of state process.

                  On an average person...say 5'10, does that put you at touching the toes?

                  • im 6'5" and have no problem with the sit and reach. if you stretch out for about a week, you shouldnt have any problems. do butterfly stretches along with hamstrings (toe touch). remember to exhale fully as you reach.

                      Co-sign on this. I have never been able to touch my toes even as a kid. A couple weeks before my test I started stretching every day. I had no problem at the pt test. If possible get someone to help you. You'll be fine. Sadly I'm back to my old non flexible self.

                      • Thanks for the input guys. Recruiting finally got back to me, it is $1000 more for a 4-yr degree. I have searched regarding retirement. The only info I see is that it is 20 years. What is the percentage? Or how does it work for you guys?


                        Thanks again.

                          And, regular stretching, as you get older, is a great way to ward off injuries, too.

                          • Hey all, I'm taking the test for Baltimore City next Monday here in New York. The recruiter told me on the phone I have to wear a suit & tie etc. Any ideas as to what to expect? Any response or p.m.'s would be great. Thanks.

                              the written is fairly easy. its mostly common knowledge/sense type things.
