    I wrote a basic letter with some basic fluff and that I was interested in testing or applying with their agency and could they please inform me of their next available test.

    I got a pretty good response. Some responded immediately and mailed me back an application, some responded and told me when the next test date would be or was expected to be.

    I even got some responses months later, sending me an application when the process had opened up.

    It didn't take a great amount of time, since I just had one letter and changed the agency information. And it only cost me a book or two of stamps.

    Just one thought if you are trying to cover all bases.
    This is excellent advice. I think on an off day I am going to start trying this!

    Thanks for the advice. Sounds like a great way to find out about the smaller departments.

    contacting the department. you also have to remember not all departments test every year, some civil service tests are good for 2 years etc. and some smaller departments you first start out as an auxiliary officer and work your way to part time and then full time.

    i started here, http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/data/table_78_oh.html
    just about every department in ohio is listed and i basically went down the list checking city websites and using job search sites that pull from multiple sources(like indeed.com). most midsized departments and above are good at advertising or atleast that city is good about listing it on their human resources page.

    pretty sure they only have to advertise when it's civil service. i may be wrong though. where are you looking? just locally or statewide? i used that method and was testing atleast once a month.

    I do this too, but sometimes PD's don't advertise very well.

    Anybody know what Mayfield's PAT test is like? Is it the OPOTA test format (sit-ups, push-ups, 1 1/2-mile run) or is there extra things in it like the Tri-C test?

    Mayfield Village is testing on June 1st. You can download the application on their site. Supposedly John Carroll's looking for campus cops, but their human resources site had bupkis on the subject. Doesn't Parma send you to the state academy too?
