  • Congrats! Jontot. Glad to hear about your experience at the Academy. I'm hoping and praying that one day I too get the call to join the Court Officers. Good luck to you at your command.

    • I'd like to congratulate all the new officers graduating today. It's been a long road for many of you and today is the result of all the waiting, testing, and hard work you put in. Don't ever let them tell you "at least you have the job" because you have all EARNED the right and privilege to have your name announced and walk across the stage. Best wishes to all of you in your new careers! You should be very proud and all of us already on are proud of you. Enjoy today and as side note, get into deferred comp. ASAP!

      • Congratulations to all! X2 what Unblindeacon said re: the deferred comp! I didn't go into it 'til I had 12 yrs. on. I still made out very well as I put the max in from that point on, but would have done so much better starting earlier. Anyway enjoy your big day today and best of luck in the future to all of you

        • It has gotten pretty quiet. Anybody have any new news? I took my written psych almost a month ago and I'm still waiting for the psych interview. Is that normal?

            • I took my psych exam on 1/11 and had my interview on 2/28. It does take some time in between the exam and interview. With one class (NYC) already done and the other (Cohoes) about to be done, OCA will take their time processing. The new budget started on 4/1, so they have plenty of time to start new academies when they want to. Be patient. They will call you for your interviews.

                • There hasn't been much posting here as of late. Hope all is well with everyone who are still in the process. Has anyone heard of anything about another academy for both NYC & Cohoes? Waiting to here if I passed all phases of the hiring process myself.

                  • Yeah. Heard some things the other day. None of them good. All rumor, second or third hand. But...

                    After this class graduates from Cohoes in May, there is a 99.9999999999999% statistical chance it will be the last class to come out of Cohoes. Ever.

                    The new Academy in the city is about 3 years from done.

                    Anymore upstate recruits are going to go through the city. And with a zero growth budget, well, plan accordingly.

                    Tough news.

                    • It's true all recruits will go through Brooklyn but I thought the new academy was opening within this year. I will ask around...

                      • Please do, unblindeacon.

                        I really want to the rumors to be proven wrong, especially given our staffing levels. We really, really need bodies.

                        • Well it wouldn't bother me if I had to go to Brooklyn to the new academy from upstate. I just hope it is within this year and not three years from now. I really want this job and if I have to travel a couple more hours more to the new academy for it, so be it. Waited too long and worked too hard for a shot at this job.

                              • Thanks unblindeacon for the information. It sounds like the new academy will not be finished until a year or two from now. Sounds/looks like the new academy is going to be huge. Hopefully now OCA will still run an academy for us upstate people in Cohoes until the new one is ready. A lot of us will be done with the hiring process and I hope they use the academy in Cohoes a couple more times just to get people on the job.
