  • Thanks for the info JAS104. How was the process for you & did you attend the 2 day process?

    Guys I've heard suggest living outside the city in the county. Good luck with the process, I did it a couple months ago.

    • Thanks I will look into these areas.

This is even true of the Inner Harbor/Downtown area. Try walking west along Fayette St towards Greene St to get to the University of Maryland - Baltimore. You are going to walk through a couple of blocks of sketchy areas before you get there. Unless you have a working knowledge of the city limits, I wouldn't recommend starting off there.

      Also, consider that per policy, city officers must be armed at all times when in the city limits. If you live in the city, that means being armed from the moment you exit your front door to the moment you come back in. The reason for this is because the city expects you to respond in on-view situations regardless of whether you are on, or off-duty. I don't know about you guys, but there are some days where I like to not be "Officer Seraphym", and just "Seraphym", like when my wife and I are just wanting to have a good time at a bar/restaurant.

      What I wouldn't recommend is commuting from PA to Baltimore until after the academy. Too much can go wrong and while your Sgt or OIC will probably be forgiving about isolated events of being tardy to roll call, the academy instructors will not. Do it once and not only will your instructors consider you the most hated guy of the day, but your class will too.

        Wasn't bad, run of the mill stuff. Day 1 is the physical and written exams and you'll fill some stuff out, day 2 you will meet with an investigator who will go through your background packet with you and clarify anything that's ambiguous, etc. Be on time on day one, and bring something to eat because I was there a while. If you're staying down there for the night the Holiday Inn in E Gay street usually has a couple rooms set aside for police recruitment events that you can get at a discount. Let me know if you have any other questions.
