  • i really do hope that they extend the list, this isnt any of our faults. some of us were right at the finish line of our process to get in to the academy and now it seems like we may have to start from the beginning starting next year, which honestly for me i would probably start looking for something else. still holding out hope but yea. probably going to have to redo the physical as well since those only last a year.

      I'm pretty sure the 2014 list is dead. I haven't heard of any processing or talks of another class, there are rumors going around that the last class won't survive layoffs.

          Aren't they already understaffed before the Coronavirus even hit? In addition to already being understaffed, there are those that have retired as of April 2020...and then there will be even more retiring before the courts fully open due to fear of exposure.

          Worst case scenario, there would only be temporary layoffs before the courts fully open.

            Courts been understaffed since 2009, Cuomo cut the budget back in 2010 and it’s been a catch up game ever since .

          Yes the courts are definitely understaffed. There was supposed to be an retirement incentive at the end of the year, but cuomo shot that down. Layoffs would be temporary if they do occur.

              Hey Freshman, Im on the job. If you haven't heard already, courts need to cut 300 million dollars to meet a deficit. All we have are rumors at this time, but there are rumors of layoffs through-out all of OCA including the class that just graduated at the very least. But layoffs are the very last step in the process.

              It was stated however that part of getting out of that 300 million dollar deficit was placing a hiring freeze. Don't know how long, or when it'll take place. I'll try my best to post something when there are more concrete answers.

              Of course, i am from the 2014 test as well. 2 years on... i know the feeling of radio silence when it comes to this process, I was so anxious. so I hop on to drop some updates when I get them.

              I appreciate that Freshman, We are all in this together! Again, ill keep you guys informed as I hear more.

          • Thank you rat95 for the info. I'm also from the 2014 list that just missed the last downstate class. I'll be following this thread for any information. Thank you again

                UchihaMadara,

                I'll tell you what ive heard. Still only rumors at this point in the game. There is talk about 800-1200 layoffs throughout the court system statewide. This is not a good look for the class that just graduated. I personally don't think they'll touch many of the officers, but i do think some will be laid off if the 800-1200 number is true. At this point i've yet to hear anyone from that class receiving a lay off letter. I wil try to keep you posted as i hear more.

                I heard pretty much what Rat said. IMO keep your eyes open for other exams. I don't know if there is much available now but take anything that your qualified for. Don't pass up opportunities waiting for the next CO test. If you can get into a state agency you'll start building time. I don't see the courts hiring for at least 3-5 years.

            • Any updates? Really hoping to take the exam this year but probably wishful thinking at this point.

                Yeah...I'm sure the 2014 list is dead. One would think they could pull people who passed everything from then but it would make them more money to just offer a new exam so...oh well lol. Wouldn't have a problem retesting but ughh that wait again...

                I hear you on that. But how are they even going to make money if they can't even give out the test. The only way I can see them pulling people from the 2014 list is if they need people quick.

            • I’d hope they’d at least try and hire the people that were pretty much at the finish line like me lol. At least until a new list is established. Didn’t they do that with the list before 2014?

              • Yes, I'm in the same boat as you elovey9. Changed my location district to upstate after I just missed this last academy in Brooklyn.

                • Question for those currently working in the courts. With in person slowed or stopped, what are Officers doing? Is everyone still in the court buildings? Are there layoffs? I ask because I am a county Deputy working in State Court House. We have sent Deputies back to road patrol. Just wondering what State Court Officers are doing.

                    Im downstate every building has been on a different schedule however my building has been on rotating shifts since the pandemic started specifically 1 week on 1 week off. No one has been laid off and we are not using our own time during our off weeks.

                  I’m retired, but one of my buddies that I’m still in contact with told me a few weeks ago no layoffs so far. Since almost everything is done remotely, the officers in his command in NYC are divided into 4 squads. Each squad works 1 week, and is then off for the next 3 weeks.That is for his particular command, don’t know what others are doing

                    My friends wife is a Court Officer and told me kind of the same thing. I think she works in Nassau so it may be just how they are doing it in general.

                    Yes but they won’t be raises for a while

                • thinking about taking that test again, doing that wait again, the physical and the examinations agains really gets me sick . i was at the finish line before the pandemic, just needed the board approval at that point since i already have gotten the evaluation passing grades.

                  ughhhhh.

                  really hope they push us forward still...
