          So basically you're saying that it's OK to dog it just because it's the first step in the process.

          If you absolutely want this bad, and you know the PAT is the first step with its rigorous testing, than you should put 100% into getting yourself into shape for it. You said it yourself. If that's not what you're trying to say then all you're doing is making excuses for not wanting to prepare. It's not rocket science. Put in the work to get the results you hope to achieve.

          And of course the defendant is not going to care whether you are a female or male, but if it comes to testing a female and male on the same exact level... then a lot of the males are not as fit as they believe if a female can do the same amount of push up and sit ups a male can do.
          A lot of males aren't as fit as their female counterparts and that's fine. It's not a competition. It's equal opportunity and they're going to test everyone equally no matter your gender. When you're there you're all the same in their eyes. The only thing that sets you apart is whether or not you can pass.

Clearly we all know that here BUT me saying it should be "either the same or easier" means that they should not be so tough on a PAT test when it is only the beginning of the process. By doing so they are getting rid of a lot of qualifying candidates who can get into physical shape before and during the academy. I know a lot of people who were not physically fit before going into the NYPD academy and during their process there, they became fit.

            Your position is ludicrous, you want the job? Do the work, there are no free rides. Spend some more time in the gym and less time me on the computer and you will be fine. You aren't being asked to prepare for the olympics. I just looked at the new P.A.T., if you cannot pass knowing exactly what tests will be performed and considering that you have ample time to prepare, then you have no one to blame but yourself.

            Why do you think they test people at all? You need a certain level of strength and fitness to do the job and to make it through the Academy. Yes, not everyone will pass, if everyone did, why bother testing. OCA not only posted exactly how you will be tested, they also explained the scoring. I'm sorry, making it easier is not the answer.

            A determination was made based on job analysis that the job required a certain level of fitness and strength. How can they then have a different standard for men and women? The physical requirements are the physical requirements for men and women. It is my understanding that OCA did a lot of work and spent a lot of time and money formulating this new test. And for the record, there is no easier more accurate test of ones upper body strength than a push up...

            Good luck...

            • Hey I'm new to the thread and I'm sure whatever I ask has probably been answered in the almost 300 pages prior so forgive me if I ask something already discussed. I was just wondering if anyone knows about the length of processing for this job title as compared to local police or corrections titles. For example: I live on Long Island and the processing for county positions is years. As in 3-5 years from exam to hire. Can the same be expected with this position?

              Again, if previously answered I apologize. Thanks in advance.

                Just to give you an idea. There are people currently in the academy that took the exam in 09. The people of the 14 exam haven't even started processing.

                • For those of you that may have missed it, we have a GroupMe group for the '14 exam takers and OTJ guys to discuss in a more fluid manner.

                      Great idea! Maybe we can all get together and start working out and practicing for the PAT

                      • Anybody OTJ know how likely/unlikely new CO's are to stay at 62 Years and out retirement, or is there a lot of talk of going back to 30 years/ and out. OR if there's any talk of going to 25 years/out like most LE Agencies throughout NY.

                          It's very rare that a pension plan goes backwards on tiers. The state wants you to work as long as possible without collecting ur pension.

                            *Age 63.

                            Restoration of 30/55 has passed the legislature the past couple of years only to be vetoed. I assume we may follow that same path again.

                              I asked this question as well, as were all hoping for the best. I don't know how recent but i believe this did happen to tier 5 members at some point and was brought back down to 30/55.....Hopeful thinking of course, but its still possible...i will have to check dinosaurs posts for the facts
