How long of a wait is it from the submission of the interest card until you are called for the academy... because NYPD was a 3 year wait.

    Thanks!

    From what i last heard they have an academy class starting in April...after you fill out the interest card they will reply with a phone call or email usually within a week

    Hey. I tested in May for the... Sometime...academy. First, I dunno where you heard the november thing, but as of thursday, they don't have a start date set. The weekend testing goes smooth, but I hit a wall after, since they "aren't doing certain background checks until [they] have a date set for academy". I'm guessing that means out of state? Anyway, I had about 35 at the city entrance exam, 70 the next day for the fitness test, and of that 70 maybe 30 were still in for the written psych. The fitness test looks easy but it's pretty hard. At least the running part was, I'm not used to the altitude.

    Seems to be alot of that going around. The worst part is that you can't really self sponsor youself through the academy in NM, but at the same time most agencies don't have the expenditures to put anyone through the training either.

    Six or seven years ago my mailman was telling me that his wife was in the academy. She rolled out on an injury; he was saying it sucked because they spent $1700 or $1800 on all her gear. It may be cheaper now, but even $1K is still too much for me right now.

    Yeah, they told us after the fitness test that we have to pass again on those standards the first day of academy and how it would "really suck to fail, since you just spent about a thousand dollars on gear".

    Congrats!

    Are they still requiring that cadets purchase all their own gear - something like $2K worth? That's the only thing stopping me from pursuing it.

    Well, I PASSED! Cut it a little close on the run (they weren't kidding when they say the elevation can add 2 minutes if you aren't used to it), but I made it at least. They told us academy will be in October at the EARLIEST, but it'll be more than 35 people. What they want is to graduate 35, so the academy class should be closer to 50.

    Ha, yeah, I'll be there on Sunday. Kind of worried about the 1.5 mile run, actually.

    ....Yes. Supposedly there hiring one, at least that is the recent jist of things, though at current they have 15 cadets seated for it...I think out of 35. So, it'll be very small. I missed my first shot do to missing the 300 meter sprint by 3 seconds so I should see ya in may if its the physical testing your talking about
