  • Mount Vernon PD upcoming exam

    I am thinking about applying to this exam, but have a few questions?

    I'm in pretty good shape, but I could work out a little more, How many push ups/sit ups does the physical entail???

    I live in NYC, do they hire more Mount Vernon residents as opposed to out of area???

    How is this department overall? Morale? Assignments?? etccc

                sc87,

                You should have signed up to take the Mt Vernon test again in 2009. If you don't get hired for this January 2010 class then your name will be off any Mt Vernon list because the new list will be activated after this current test.

                    I am pretty sure NYS civil service law says that a list must be valid for atleast 2 years and can be extended for up to two - one year periods. This is how most departments keep their list valid for four years.

                    So I believe sc87 should be ok until the end of 2010.

                      Negative, the list can only be extended if no other test for the current position has been offered. Once this MVPD test in 2009 is given and the list is activated, all previous test lists will no longer be valid.
