    Baltimore City Police Department Q&A

    Hi guys, I’ve spoken on the phone with recruiters and am hoping to participate in an upcoming round of the out of state four day testing after I whip myself into shape (BPD PAT standards are far stricter than my state’s).

    1. Is the crime problem in some neighborhoods really as bad as Dan Rodricks and everyone says it is? Although I’ve been to Baltimore before, I didn’t see any indicators. I just want to know what I may be getting into.

    2. Is it "easy" to get on with BPD? Is it a highly competitive process? I've got a clean history, no arrests, one moving violation/accident due to snowy conditions, been fired once, no bad debts (although I had some in the past), absolutely no drug use ever, equivalent of two years of college, a government “community services” oriented job and I volunteer with the county court and probation authority dealing with low risk felons. That said, I'm curious about my chances despite I’ve heard that it is one of the easier departments to get on with. From other threads I’ve gleaned that the test is relatively simple, the PAT not too trying and the BPD background check is swift process.

    3. How long does it take for a highly motivated, intelligent person to move around in the department?

    I've also heard that:
    Tasers and ASP batons are not issued/used, Is this true? Tasers are essentially standard issue equipment in my state.

    I’ve read and been told that the majority of MDT/CAD systems in BPD squad cars do not work. You must have the world's greatest dispatchers!

    Thank you in advance to all BPD who take the time to respond. If you’ve already responded personally to my questions before, no need to address any of these. I’m excited to go through the selection process, I’ve always thought highly of the BPD! Be safe out there guys.

    I have my psych and medical on the 22nd and the 23rd. I'm hoping to get "THE CALL" after that, with an academy date. Does anyone know how often they have classes?

    I'd suggest just shaving that stuff

    Anyone know if beards are allowed? I saw the policy says no beards but I see many BPD officers with full beards. Curious how they feel about beards.

    Not the city! Try Baltimore County (Towson, Perry Hall, White Marsh, Nottingham)

    I’m waiting for the phone call for the academy date. I’m excited that hopefully I’m joining the Baltimore City Police Training academy. I’m curious to anyone that is a officer or in the academy now, how long did you had to wait for the final offer after the entire process ( background, polygraph, physical, psychological) ?
