      Lol I see man! I’m definitely going to be renting a place when I get out there…(fingers crossed) I think it would be better to wait until those bigger pay checks kick in to even think about buying right now in this market

      Northwest part of town usually has the cheaper prices in nice areas. Also, a lot of the time, it’s cheaper to rent a house than an apartment. If you’re looking to buy, I’d wait until the eviction moratorium ends. It’s driving the market super high.

    My wife and I lived in the Green Valley area of Henderson and liked it. If you have kids, that's a good area to target because relative to the rest of Vegas, the public schools are good.

    Her parents lived in the Anthem area of Henderson. Nice but overpriced.

    Southwest was "up & coming" at the time we were there (2010-2017) and lots of my friends moved there. Summerlin would be the other area to look.

    I would avoid anything on or East of I-515. I would avoid anything on or North of highway 95.

      I recommend living near the academy for the extra sleep. You'll be waking up early and you'll also be staying up late doing homework. There are apartments next to the academy but can be expensive. I personally lived in Providence area which is on 215/Hualapai. Just like most major cities in the country, the housing/rental market is insane at this time.

      I believe someone already posted the hourly wage. You start getting paid day 1. There is no state tax and you will not be paying into social security. So the only deduction should be federal.

      If you don't already know, you have buy your own firearm, holster, boots and vest. I'd wait until the tac staff instruct you to buy them(you'll need boots day 1). You'll get a department ID on day 1, with that ID you can purchase a firearm under a blue label program saving you some money. Uniforms and the rest of the duty belt is provided on day 0.

      Everything that will be required(paper, bags, pens etc) for the academy will be sent to you by HR.
      knowledge equals confidence

        Hey all, for anybody preparing for the academy, I came across this study guide. Has all the codes, dispositions, phonetic alphabet, and definitions that we’ll have to know. Good luck everyone!

            Hang in there. I finished all of the steps at the beginning of February. Didn’t get notified that the BGI was done until 4/15. No news is good news! Good luck.

            Also, keep an eye on your junk email. One of my emails from metro came into that one, and I didn’t see it for a couple weeks.

          To all my November guys n gals, keep training, keep practicing your 400s, dispositions, and definitions, and most of all keep preparing yourselves mentally for a rigorous adventure ahead. Though it feels like it’s taking forever (at least on my end I can say haha) our time is near. We should be receiving calls/emails within the next 2 weeks and from there we’ll have better ideas as to what to look for in the upcoming weeks until July 19th. Keep strong, keep doing what you’re all doing, and I’ll see y’all at Medical/In Processing/Day 0/Day1!

            Congrats Corvette, hopefully, I'll see you at booking one day. Get ready for a wait that will drive you mad, even though we got the email, every day feels like a year thanks to the anticipation.

            Wishing you the best of luck, work on your running/pushups/abs/etc, 400 codes, dispositions, and definitions!

            I applied for both, knowing I’d enjoy either. I’ve responded to all three jails in our area, knew I’d like working with those officers.

            There’s a lot of paperwork and stuff to fill out. Good luck, everyone!

            Corvette I tested in August and then pt in nov, passed background in April and just waiting on a call from HR for medical which I’m nervous for. Also For PO side. Looking forward to hearing from them hopefully we all get to start the academy soon.

        • #41
          To all my PO folk; from a couple friends I spoke with, the people that compiled Vegas’s list for CO is different than our people for PO plus CO usually works a lot faster than PO since they’re a lot hungrier for people. Their location from academy is different than ours. Everything’s different. So don’t fret as we still have more time to hear from HR. I’m gonna call Recruitment Monday just to verify and put (at least my mind) minds at ease.

          Congrats Vegas, welcome SendMe, and let’s get this show on the road!

            I appreciate this, keeping my phone on full volume. Also I have been practicing 400 codes, definition, and keeping up with my PT. Any more advice ?

            Sned, just keep doing what you're doing bud, and stay positive and out of trouble. Even a speeding ticket could blow all this up.. Prepare yourself mentally for a rigorous period upcoming, but most of all keep being excited for working for the best dept. in the United States hands down.

            I’m not sure on rank, when I first received my rank I was 200+ but that was back in November.

            Send, then that would be your rank. Nobody received their updated ranks since all the DQs happened. HR has it on file when they compile all the lists, and you will receive a new number once you are placed on an academy list. That new number will tell you your number in the academy, and furthermore, another number will be given that is known as your employee number, or otherwise P#.

          Covid had all the date differently I just sent you a PM On my dates for every phase. Background,poly, etc

            Congrats everyone on getting your background approved.

            I applied for the Feb 21 testing date. Just finished my Poly on May 11th which the lady advised I passed. Now im waiting to hear if I passed my BG. I would assume I won't hear anything till sometime in June based on reading the post on the topic is that correct?

              That’s correct, you’ll hear roughly around the last week on June. I did my written exam January 18 followed with PT. Finished all steps on March 23, got cleared last week. (Out of state)

          • #45
            To all my PO, more so the November testers, I contacted Recruitment today and they have yet to compile a list for the Academy, for police officer. So keep your phones next to you and keep them loud. It’s anticipated to go out sometime this week or next week
