  • we had several annapolis police trainees in my class that never took any pre hire agility, poly, or psych. their agency forgot to schedule them for those steps before hiring. a couple weeks after we all graduated, those officers were suspended with pay and had to pass all of those tests before being reinstated... basically a 3 week paid vacation.

    my point is, it wouldnt be the end of the world if your pre hire agility expires and BPD doesnt retest you immediately. of course, you are best off telling your BI now rather than later.

      • Does Baltimore usually tell you why they won't consider you for hire? I came in with confidence, but received that thin letter after my psych test. I just want to know for future employment with other departments/agencies.

        • they wont tell you, but if you got the DQ letter after the pysch test, then you failed the psych test.

                I don't think the psych decision is made until after you take the oral so the doc can look at both tests.. I could be wrong though.. It could be something you wrote in the packet and explanation section...

                  Got that same letter. Sent a response letter requesting a date of when I can reapply. I'll wait for a return correspondence and poop in the other hand

                  I would tend to agree. They want you to explain areas of theft and criminal activity so the doc can look harder at Scale 4 of the MMPI-2, Psychopathic Deviate (anti-authority scale). I doubt any doctor is paid to look at your test until the actual oral psych. So we're not nuts lol. We just explained things in our background, for which, Baltimore has no tolerance. It's understandable

                  • these are good points. maybe the only way you can fail the written psych before being orally analyzed is if you admit to contemplating suicide or hearing voices. what probably DQ'ed you then, if you did not admit to these things, was your "list of crimes" sheet that you filled out. how's your background?

                    • im guessing that either your written was a total "fail", or that something in your packet was bad and it was just coincidence that you got the letter after taking the written psych.
