    So, I'm planning on using up some vacation days at work, and heading out east to visit a few agencies that I am considering putting in with. While out there (probably 3rd week of March), I want to do a ride-along at BPD (amongst other departments).

    Given that I cannot find any "centralized" phone number, rather just the individual patrol districts, is there one that you guys would recommend calling to see about the ride-along?

    In selecting a district, I want to see an "average" day-in-the-life of a BPD cop, so to speak. Any suggestions?
    I received a call today to inform me the processing scheduled for February 13th and 14th have been moved to February 20th and 21st. I live in PA and will be making the hour trek to complete the process over the weekend. I was not given much information(I did ask and was told a test on Friday, agility on Saturday) about what we will be doing over the weekend so if anyone knows, I would appreciate the insight.

    • Hey Guys,
      I was wondering if anyone on here has heard anything about a start date for the next academy?

        I got the same call today. I know just as much as you stated. I'm coming from the Lancaster PA area.

          We have one picked out but have not reserved it yet. I should probably reserve soon as that is valentine's weekend. Good luck with everything if you decide to go down as well!

                  • JVegas... Do you EVER remember returning home by 5 pm for the first umm.. 2 months.. I remember staying late.. Fairly late almost daily for the first few months.. And then after that it was hit or miss if we'd get off on time until the very end haha.. No fair.. Hope all is doing well.

                            Blah I got the same call. Now the two people that were supposed to embark on the 7 hr trip with me might not be able to make it. I was told that there is a psych test as well on sat, along with the pt test. I don't have much info beyond that though.

                            To those who have already taken the written test: how hard is it? I have taken a handful of tests for various agencies and usually have no problem scoring well. Some were harder than others. Just trying to get an idea of what I'm in for here.

                            • Not hard at all, just 25 questions. It's pretty much common sense. Only thing some people have problems with is memorization.
