        wont say his name on here, but if you get hired, you will run into him again at the range. he's much older than 27! He was in swat for a few years...and extremely knowledgeable...hell of a guy.

        • Don't mean to thread jack, but I was discussing the BPD Academy with a former officer the other day and we were on the topic of agencies that use it. Only ones that were come up with were BPD, Watershed, and sometimes the MTA. Is that all, or are there more. This is less of a 'need to know for sure' and more of a general interest. Someone else said folks from the Convention center, but wasn't sure. Figured this would be a best place to ask.

          Also, congrats the the recent graduates.

                  only been on the streets since July 11th, but i'd be willing to bet that I have experienced many things that county Police with more than 5 have. Not knocking county police, because Bmore is a large metro city, so of course we have more crime/more opportunity to experience violent crimes.

                      From my understanding, all applicant's must take the polygraph. I had to take a poly to be hired for a contractual civilian position...a year and a half later and I had to take another one since I am applying to be a police officer. I spoke with one of the poly detectives the other day and he said they were very backed up (he said 150 people but don't quote me on that).

                      • Waiting Too

                        I waiting to take the polygraph, Med, and oral psych too. I have to wait for my investigator to come back from vacation. She stated though she would have me ready to attend the next academy class which most likely is in the end of November.

                        This is what some of the recruiters are saying anyway. I sure their is going to be an academy class before Jan 09.
                        Exam - Passed
                        Physical - Passed
                        Written Psych - Passed
                        Background Investigation - November
                        Oral Psych - Oct 27th
                        Polygraph - Oct 27th
                        Medical - Oct 28th

                        • from what i have heard is there may be 2 classes before jan 09. the jan 09 class is scheduled to be live-in for 30 days in sykesville.

                          polygraphs are a state requirement, however, i have heard of at least 1 person not being poly'd. i wont mention the agency, but it was not BPD.

                          • I know that the BPD website says that the starting salary for officers is $41,058, but does anyone know what the current payscale is?

                              scroll down to page 43. this will be changing, though, as the new contract is currently past due.
