    Hopefully in my case, those that do drop do so during the first week.

      The first week quitters are usually the ones that can't handle the change. You go from whatever status you had in the real world to a NOBODY! Some people have a hard time with that. Or they are very out of shape. At least these are what I noticed.

      Good luck to ya'll up there.

      • Ok. Im new on here and now a little discouraged. I applied back is sept 08. Didnt hear a thing until this june. I tested late june and passed. Was scheduled for the poly in early august and passed, although I havent received a letter yet. I was told when I emailed recruiting. They said they couldnt tell me how far up on the list I was because I had so much more to go. I was under the impression that if I got called for the background I was pretty much in for an upcoming class. Is that not correct. Realistically I am starting to think this isnt going to happen. Does anyone have any insight on this. Does it sound like I may get one of those reapply in 18 months letter? Im not giving up.

        • You won't get a letter saying you passed the poly, only if you failed. You will get a call from your background investigator setting up a meeting to start your B.I. I believe they are having funding issues and it sounds like things have slowed a bit.
          Getting a call to start your B.I. really doesn't mean your "in", it just means you passed your poly. Passing the poly and B.I. is a huge step. After that, you have medical, psych and the fitness test again.
          Right now they only have one class confirmed and that is October 13th. It was cut from 104 to 55.

          • Thanks for the info. I figured funding would effect things like everything else. By the way. What is Gov Stricklands stance with OSHP. Is he wanting to reduce staff/cut more funding? With all the upcoming elections I wonder how its going to effect things. By the way things are sounding its not looking like another class is gonna start for a long time.

                Well, what does that tell us. A union endorses him. Isn't he a Democrat. Not the most pro law enforcement party ever. Not that it makes a difference since most politicians are out for themselves anyways.
                I say all incumbents out no matter what party. We need new blood in every office otherwise we will continue to circle the drain.

                    Do a google search and you will find lots of news stories. He has no love for the OSHP. Most dems don't care much for Law Enforcement in general.

                    • Now that the 150th has been moved back and cut in half, when the next class will be is uncertain. That's what they told us the last time I was at the academy. She didn't seem very optimistic about the next class happening anytime soon.

                        Unless they vote out the current Governor. Then maybe sooner.

                            • Above is the best advice. I also have an interview next month with the ODRC. So if I don't get on Iowa at least I can do corrections in Ohio until I can get on with a state patrol. That's the route i'm looking at. I went on a ridealong this past weekend and it floored my feeling and anticipations of becoming a trooper. Law Enforcement like anything else is a numbers game. They need to weigh performance, retirements, budget, supplies/vehicles etc.. before they can ever make a judgement call for an academy it seems like. This is how I perceive it... Maybe i'm wrong.

                              • Question for those already passed the initial. Do I take the vision form to my eye doctor to have it complete? I asked HR and I didn't get a clear response. Then do they check your stuff again later on?
