    I am about to start being backgrounded. I did the physical earlier this month. They told me they do the physical every 2 months, so you'll prolly do it in August.

    I am in shape, and hit the gym. But haven't been training outside... it was much harder when it was 92 degrees lol I was a little shakey and weak. So do some of your running and pushups in the heat.

    Haven't done the interviews or anything yet, so I don't have much for advice.

    It seems like a really good agency, its my #1 choice... I am hoping to get hired super bad

      Nice yeah I have been running at the gym but recently started running outside. Do you know if they have contacted any of your references from your PHQ yet? Good luck are you trying for a January slot?

        Starting backgrounds as well. I did my own practice test before the actually PT Test which showed me my weak areas. Good luck the heat makes it rough.

          They haven't. Once they start contacting them, I am sure some of my friends will let me know.

          After the PT, you have exactly 15 days to submit your PHQ. Your real PHQ is on a system called POBITS, which is what NLV uses. I don't think they use the NTN PHQ, but you still have to fill that one out to move on and take the physical.

          It took me many, many hours. I had a lot of different employers back in the day. I was never arrested, but I did a bunch of public requests requests on myself, for all my past police contacts. I printed them out. I am expecting my background investigator to contact me soon for the initial interview... to hand those in, along with my transcripts and all the other paperwork required. I keep feeling like I forgot something, but I did my best to be detailed in my PHQ.

          The next academy is July, which is too soon for where I am in the process unfortunately. So yes January.

            No rank, not sure if they do that

            NLV does the panel interview after the background, so I am not sure if they bother ranking after that or not. I know they are hiring a ton, especially next year. Retirements, and the city is growing so fast. I think I heard they are trying to open another substation in the NE section of the city too.

            If you did your NTN written, make sure you fill out the NTN PHQ, and then the application on the actual City of NLV website. Or they won't invite you to the next step

                  Same for me. Was hoping for a call soon because I am anxious. I submitted it 2 days before the due date. But at the same time I know they have a lot to do, so I don't wanna be an annoyance

                    That’s understandable. I’m just worried around my work schedule so the sooner they start making calls would definitely make it easier. Let me know if you hear anything!

                  Yessir me too, I'm gonna have to find a way to make my work schedule flexible... especially if there is a initial background interview, another one after that, and then the Chiefs interview

                  For sure, lemme know too if you hear anything. I'm assuming they are finishing up backgrounds for the July academy or something
