    We still need to call the Psych Department even if we replied to the e-mail confirmation, correct?

    Make sure you guys and gals take the words of the Chief serious. The physical training is not a joke. The job is not a joke. Best of luck to all.

    In what range is your list number? I'm in the late 10,000s...and yet I saw people in the 6000 range on the 24th.

    I guess anything is possible but I'm not too optimistic about getting into a rumored November class especially with Court Officer having such small classes(compared to DOC/NYPD)...

    He talked about the Supreme Court and said when a person is facing 25 years to life, you are the one person that is preventing them from freedom. These people have nothing to lose so they may attempt to tackle and grab your gun. He told us to expect to get punched by people and pepper sprayed. He said law and order is a lie and TV doesn't accurately portray the life of a court officer. He talked about his career and the obstacles he went through.

    He told us to keep training because the academy is harder and the requirements for this test are the minimum. Keep running, sit-up, mountain climbers (basically core workouts and cardio). He said we run outside in Prospect Park, so I was going to aim to run 3 times a week 3.5 miles. And he stressed the importance of training your body because there may be a situation where we have to run up 5 flights of stairs to get to a court room.

    Hi everyone!

    They did speak about 6/24 and said they overbooked it (250ish people). On 6/27, there was 150 people who checked in, and I would say about 60 pass. I was one of them. Woohoo!!

    They check everyone in and make sure you have all the correct documentation (many people forgot and had to leave). Next, they give a 30 min talk about the test and court officer life. Then, they assign group numbers. The test started around 9:30am and I think the first group finished around 1:30pm. I was in the last group. We started our test at 3pm, and I got out around 6pm. After you pass the physical, you have to take the vision test, and they take your fingerprints. Last, they talk about next steps and give you a date for written psychological and background test. It really depends on the group you are in, but I would block out the whole day.

    Also, make sure you got a confirmation email. I received mine a week before. Some people confirmed, but never got a confirmation email and then they had to wait to see if they can squeeze them in. They also said never leave a message and make sure you talk to a real human. Good luck everyone!

    No clue but it felt like they scheduled too many people on the 24th...I can't imagine they expected us to start at 7:30AM and be there until the late evening. There were over 30 groups, I was in the 30s and I left around 6:30PM...and there was still another classroom after me. Keep in mind each classroom was at least 30 or so people and they took us in groups of 6 I believe it was.

    My PAT appointment for the 6/27 was postponed as well. Just got the email this evening. Bummed. I was ready to get this done. I have to be on the look out for the new appointment date. Anyone know what happened or why they are canceling/postponing these appointments?

    An investigator told my group that there were around 248 people...I got there for check-in at 7:30(start time at 8)...idk what took so long but we were told lots of people were failing/people throwing up killed time as well...

    Seemed like they weren't prepared for us to be there so long...or perhaps that was part of process...hmm lol
