  • Rochester 3/30/11 exam

    Looking for information on the Rochester NY police exam. I see we have some people going through the process right now. Im taking the 4/30/2011 exam here in few weeks. Looking to see if any one has a "ballpark' on when they plan on conducting an academy based off this April 30th exam. Im from western new york, have been an officer in Florida for several years now and am ready to come back home.looking for a time frame on the hiring process nowadays. It be nice to keep this thread going, with updates.

    Wow, i was excited to see this post. I took the exam in May or June of 2010. They had a bit of a hold up due to a bunch of factors. But they seem to be on the move now. Ive done a lot of testing in the past 2 weeks. So like I said it seems like they are trying to get things moving now. I know they are combining the test I took with november and the one after that. I dont know if they are going to throw the April one in there too. They are trying to get more minorities into this next academy. I have heard through the grape vine that they are trying to get an academy going by Aug/Sep the latest. Their process on average usually takes about 9months from the date you recieve your test scores.... Hope this helped you a bit

        When I talked to HR they said expect your results from the 4/30/2011 exam toward the end of summer (August, 3-4 months) and to expect the PT in early fall. I was also told if all goes well, applicants off that list would start academy in the new year. I was going to take it but received the good news they would accept my Erie County results from Nov. 2010, so I am saved the agony of driving down there for a Saturday morning.

        Good luck and update on how you do/what you think of it!!!

            I got a 85. And yes I heard there is an academy starting around Aug/Sep. I dont think the April testers will be in that academy. I took my test in June 2010 and scored an 85. I know they are combining tests. They want a large Minority turnout for this next academy. I just have poly left... I have not heard from RPD telling me a date just yet....

                  I just got a call from my background officer. He said they are pushing for a Aug academy but rochester just got a new mayor so he said its all up to the mayor.... He said if not Aug then beginning of next year. He said then they would possibly include april testers into that academy depending on the numbers...

                        yeah it will be worth it LLee. im not looking forward to going to another police academy, but compared to my salary Rochester pays very good, and considering the size of the agency alot of opportunity to pick up rank or go to a specialty unit, just keep me updated and ill do the same.

                          I'm also just waiting on the poly. I took the november 2010 exam and scored a 95. I did the PT, med, written psych, and oral psych all within the last month. I'm just waiting for them to start my background and do the poly. I'm hoping for an academy this year when the weather is a little nicer. how long after the psych were you called to start the background?
