      Do you have a source for that information? Was it on the news or just word of mouth? Feel free to send me a PM if you want.

        I have been in touch with the background unit; calling every two to three weeks for updates. They have yet to give me a firm answer regarding academy class being completely canceled. I keep being told that there may be a class late this year (although not very likely according to the person I spoke to on the phone) or possibly early next year. I have been monitoring these post and there appear to be a lot of speculative answers regarding the academy class. Until I get a letter in the mail, I will remain optimistic.

          I don't think as many cops retired before the new contract that they thought would - sure that is a factor as well.

            He spoke to the Chief personally.

              They could start a class mid next year though and it wouldnt go on the "budget" until the class is officially completed in Jan 2012 - so still might see a class in 2011.

              I dont think that anyone will get a letter stating there is no class though...

              Seems like it would be a waste of money if they dont use the list they have considerring all the money that was spent to do the classes / tests / grading / etc...

                Is it hard to get into OPD, once they start the hiring process?

                  From what I was told a couple months ago when we went to OPD's range for our yearly shoot. All of the academy instructors and background people were going back to the street. If that's true I don't know, but I did see one of the academy instructors on TV a couple days ago working an accident. With that being said I wouldn't plan on a class any time soon.
                  Some people were just dropped on their heads as children more than the rest of us!

                    It's only going to be hard if you don't do well on the tests or have issues that come up during the background investigations.

                      With as many shootings as there have been lately perhaps they need more officers on the streets - higher presence = lower crime rate

                        They do, but it's not going to happen this year.

                          They don't have the dollars so they can't make sense.
