  • CMPD Out of State Lateral

    I am considering relocating from NY and am interested in CMPD. I eventually would like to work narcotics or vice and am curious if those positions are readily available and how long do you usually have to work routine patrol before you can transfer.

    Also if anyone has went through the process coming from NY your opinion will be quite helpful.

    Thanks.

    In theory you are eligible for transfer after one year (when no longer on probation). It is unlikely, but not impossible, that you would get a special assignment with just one year on, even as a lateral. Three to five years appears to be the more likely time frame to be competitive for the assignment. This could change if you brought a very specific and hard to find skill set that was needed in an assignment, but that does not happen often.

    The opportunity to work a uniformed assignment with a heavy drugs/narcotics focus could come much sooner than 3 years. Those assignments are controled by district captains, and you could very well find yourself in that assignment in a year or two.

      Thanks jnhdrac.

      Has anyone on here had the experience of being an out of state lateral from NY or the northeast?
