      typically classes are every 2 months. as far as poly, i think BPD still uses one polygraph, so the line may be backed up. i would imagine that you would be in for the class after 1/9, depending on when exactly it is.

          • Seems like I might need to look at the city as an LEO seeing as the counties are kind of getting stingy with hiring with the economy.

My guess is that you really need to stay in contact with your investigator because the holidays are here and a lot of them will be taking off during these next few weeks. The next class begins on 1/9/08 and it will be here before you know it. Good Luck, keep us posted!
                  Congrats on making it in there.

                    From what I've noticed, I think the biggest factor in going through the process (provided you have no ciminal/ drugs/ fitness/ etc.) is your background. A lot of people I talked to, took several months to get hired. I got the call in a about 2 months, but I just got out of the USMC, clean background, etc.

                      Also, it appears that after reading through this huge thread, that the BPD will not be having a hiring freeze? In addition, based on someone's post, the 4-day has changed to a 2-day and they make you come out twice if you are out-of-state? Bummer, the 4-day was going to allow me to use much less vacation.
                      From what I've been able to tell, I don't think they will have a freeze. The department is too short on officers, not to be able to put through academy classes.

                      Also re-read post# 535. The out of state process is 4 days. However that person had already taken the written, so that probably saved him sometime.

                      I think, although some can clarify, you may want to take the Civil Service Test first.

                        I wouldn't worry about if the class is full or not, just get in the door!! Take it from there then, you can always get hired and do odds and ends before the academy starts. Besides (don't tell anyone) I got the call around the Holidays (Friday before New Years Eve) and was told that if I wanted the job, come in Monday. Present employer at the time wasn't happy, oh well. However when I did start, that class had already started the week prior or something.
