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

You're applying for a job as a police officer, you have the authority to take someone's freedom away, it's not a cashier at Macy's position.

      The holidays are just finishing up, these people have lives and take into account the state of flux the department has been in in the past year. Just enjoy your life, stay fit, and get your ducks in a row for your next step in the meantime.

      I understand the desire to vent, but if they said they're contacting you in 6-8 weeks, how can you be impatient before 4 has even passed?
      How do you expect these folks to be a 3 year LT if they can't even get hired a month after they apply?

      • To those starting in the summer, I may have 2 rooms available in the townhouse I am renting. Canton/Highlandtown area. Big house. Rent is $583, utilities and all that usually come out to an extra $60-110/month depending if the water bill is due. Message me if you are interested!

              Did you ever get any dates for new classes in 2016?

                      • Hey All,

                        Participating in the Jan 23/24 Expedited Testing Process, has anyone ever completed it ? Is it a relatively quick process compared to the normal ?

                          Class 16-01 was supposed to be in session now. Unfortunately, there were not enough qualified candidates to fill the class and so it was cancelled. When class 16-01 will start, if it ever does, is an open question.

                          Recruitment for our agency has absolutely collapsed. Where the agency once received over 3,000 applications per year, it now receives almost none, literally. Can the agency start a class with 7 trainees? Sure. Will it? No. To run an academy class there have to be enough trainees to justify the expense and to allow for attrition. Things have never been this bad. Not ever.

                          Do not pin your hopes on getting hired here. It may not happen no matter how qualified you are. If another agency makes an offer, take it and don't look back.

I passed my agility on December 5th and haven't heard anything yet nor was I assigned a background investigator yet so they can't really be in that much of demand to fill the class
