  • Upstate Past, Present and Future!

    Where are all the upstaters at? I know theres some out there. Most of the threads/replies are for downstate or talking about positions downstate.

    I prefer upstate for many reasons and have no plans to apply for positions in that area.

    How about the upcoming NYS Corrections exam on Jan 2015? Any Upstaters taking that?

    Any upstate NYS Court Officers here? What about Safety and Security Officers? Current State Corrections Officers?

      Lived for a year up by Albany after I left the city. No longer there but I think about moving back sometimes. I miss it at times.

      I barely see any threads for upstate. Most recent was for Troy pd.

        Depends where you think "upstate" starts.

            Albany is three hours drive to the CanadIan border. I don't think that's even upstate. But cross the Thaddeus Kosciusko Bridge and I'd say you are upstate

                Upstate = anything North of NYC or even further North; anything North of Newburgh!

                Agreed that most of the NY threads seem to be about downstate, specifically NYPD. Nothing against those, but it would be nice if everyone with a question/comment about NYPD could be in a single, dedicated NYPD thread instead of a dozen threads all related to NYPD. For example, NYSP has it's own thread and forum users post questions/comments in that thread. There are not multiple threads about the same agency. Just a thought.

                  Ya, the 100 different exam numbers are kind of excessive.

                        That's true.....the NY Officer.com is predominately about candidates seeking NYPD employment. Nothing really about the big five NY cities: Buffalo, Albany, Rochester, Syracuse or Yonkers. Or even about the larger Sheriff's Offices that employ mainly correction officers.
