    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.

    You're right about having to get qualified applicants. On my 2 day expedited process we started with around 100+ by the end of the 2nd day we had maybe around 25 to 30 applicants still in the game and I'm being generous with that number.

    The class will come just will probably take a little longer, recruiting is working look at all the expedited process days they have been holding.

      Participating in the Jan 23/24 Expedited Testing Process, has anyone ever completed it ? Is it a relatively quick process compared to the normal ?
      If you show up prepared and ready to go with everything they ask you to bring it will be quick for you and make things easier for your investigator. Follow the directions they give you and you should be good. Please for yourself show up with decent attire, we had this one guy that had literally holes all over his white shirt when they were going to conduct the PT test. They pulled him to the side and that was the last time I saw him.

      I was embarrassed for him I can only imagine how he felt. Don't be that guy and be professional and you should be good. Good luck!

        Well. I emailed my investigator like 2 weeks ago to see if there is any updates about my poly test. She emails me back saying ( if you haven't received any disqualification letter in the mail form the recruitment; that means that you still in process also note that background investigation takes time). so that the latest thing I have got from my Inv. Lol.

        But my advise to you guys. If u made up all the way to the poly and u think you passed. Just relax and do something that will keep you busy till you hear back from your invs. Best of luck to everyone.

            Yeah pretty much no news is good news when it comes to LE. If you a receive a letter in the mail its game over with that agency.

            It probably seems like the process takes forever, but like I said in a previous post this process is relatively fast compared to other agencies.

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

Unfortunately with most processes (not exclusively Baltimore), they have a ton of people weeded out before testing even begins. I think my expedited process was around 200 people or so there that day, and only 3 of us were hired out of that bunch, all in the same academy class.

                    But you're right, recent events and such is probably making it even more difficult for most qualified applicants to come to Baltimore to try their chances, and may be heading elsewhere.
                    Not disheartened, it's all part of the process and I see things never really change.
