Not that that is bad but there is no large impersonal government making policy decisions. But the money is good and for the most part no one (outside the village) is looking over your shoulder.

    Man, since I live in Huntington, I would've jumped on that. But then again....6 dudes? Sounds like it could get boring quickly.

    Hunt. Bay is a LITTLE dept. This makes your business EVERYBODY's business at the workplace, and the chances for promotion more dependent on when someone is going to finally retire than how well you do on the promo exams.
    It also limits what you can get into beyond patrol work. No SWAT, no K9, no aviation, no motors, etc.
    If you can get on there and its not for you, keep taking other PD tests. In the meatime you'll get some experience, and won't have to sweat the $100 for the NEXT SCPD exam!

    The towns use the SCPD list to hire off of. Once they have processed all people living in the town they then move onto using non-residents to fill the positions. I scored a 97.5 on the test but as of now haven't received a letter.

    Don't believe there is a residency requirement for Huntington Bay. Might be wrong. But is a rather well-to-do area. Not many cops could afford to live there.

    I heard a while ago Nassau town cops made more than county cops. dont know if it is true though, or true for Suffolk for that matter. Perks are you have a stable job with great benefits no matter what dept. you work for.

    Sounds like it could be a neat gig. Might be tough getting a day off w/ such a small dept. Good luck though!!

    I agree with Highway. Definitely pursue the job, if you get called for SCPD then you can make your decision at that time. Congrats on getting called.

    The town is most likely hiring off the SCPD list...go forward with the process, and keep your fingers crossed, theres the posibilty of an SCPD class within 6 months.

    Thnx for the info. I'm # 7 on the list. I scored a 102.5. 5 points for veterans credit. It doesnt say anything about a residence requirement. It just has the date for orientation. I had a friend tell me that the town could just be hiring off the list and not necessarily SCPD. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I was just wondering if anyone else received a letter.

    Does it state that there is a residence requirement? Did you do really great on the exam maybe? If you did well and they see that you're a CBPO they might like that combination, you probably have unique experience and have already proved that you're an upstanding citizen (who is trusted with a firearm no less).
