      No, I'm an officer with another department. DPS has closed their posting for recruits and laterals, however, I heard that they will be opening it up again around Feb. of next year. They are looking to fill 100 positions rumor has it. Reno huh? Keep in mind you could have always transfered from southern command to northern command once a post became available.

        100 positions really? That makes me feel good. Looks like there's a chance. Which areas are they hurting for?

      Is that for new people going to be hired, or just laterals?
      Thanks in advance!

        I believe it is for entry level but they may post a lateral position also.

                  I just passed my oral boards 2 weeks ago so I am waiting to hear about my backgrounds I guess it can take a while. There is an academy in Jan and July so Im thinking that if I do pass the process it will be the July academy. Where are you in the process and if you are further than me what can I expect. Also they mentioned to me that one might be able to be brought on early maybe as a cadet has anyone heard anything about that?

                    I've heard nothing about a cadet situation, I thought cadets were 18 and under...We are in the same boat as I passed my oral board about 4 weeks ago. We will probably be scheduled for the June/July academy because the January academy is full now, according to HR. However I might not have to go through the academy as I am already category 1 post certified. Good luck!!

                      I just received an invitation for the physical fitness test this Friday Nov 30.
                      The notice also said calculators will be provided for the written.
                      Question: What kind of math did the test consist of that I would need a calculator for?
                      I really would like to brush up.
                      Is the non-math part of the test anything I can prepare for?
                      Any info would be great.
                      Thank you!

                        Well...I checked around and called the recruiter--and he said there was NO math.
                        Strange---why the calculators?
                        Oh well.
                        Anybody else testing this Friday?
