    In theory it should be over 100% funded.

    However when politicians either A) Take money from the fund for non pension reasons B) Make horrid investments decisions C) Fail to make their pension contributions several years in a row you end up with what the city has. Most "healthy" pension funds being in the mid 80's.

    If I was a city officer I would be much more concerned with them righting the pension fund then giving a 3-10% COLA or whatever they call it. Most are in a position to live 20-30 years AFTER retirement. I'd want a healthy fund for that time rather then a few extra grand now. But that's just me.

      Also what about if I went down for the April 26/27 testing? If anyone has any information I appreciate it, thanks.
      I've heard the next class will be in July. But I could be wrong.

        But is there any chance I would make the July academy if I went down April 26-27. I would probably be looking more toward the October or a future one correct?

          I'm sure there would be at least a small chance, especially with the expedited processing being more expedited now. I'll be re-starting my process around the same time. I applied last June but my application was put on hold cuz I got lasik.

              God never promised that it would be easy, just that he would be there with you every step of the way.

                Thanks for the encouragement. July would be really good, but I am not going to count on it.

                      There's a study guide on the BPD recruit website. www.bpdrecruit.com GO under "testing" and click on study guide. Good luck!

                        • Still not over yet, keep your phone close by, When I met my background investigator in February on the thursday before the academy start date (friday) . There were about 8 people who were final processing the day before the academy.

                              • How long does the background investigation usually last how long does one wait before they get a go or no after completing all the other steps? Also if I get pre hired into the department and deploy before the academy do I still have a job to comeback to and can I go to the academy after deployment?
