  • Memphis PD

    I received a conditional offer of employment back in late May with a start date of July 21. Took the medical physical and psychological evaluation in late June early July. Was told by my BI that everything went good and I should expect a call. I do know that my results didn't come back in time for me to get into the July academy. Got a letter in the mail last month that I am still in the process for the next academy and that I needed to notify them of any changes in contact information and stuff like that. My question is for anyone out there that knows anything about the hiring at MPD, Because I got a conditional offer and passed everything am I guaranteed a firm offer of employment? And if so, when do you expect I will be notified? Thanks for any and all information!

          I agree with you calling them. I know too many people that were not notified until the morning of the first day or the friday before.

          Call with professionalism and simply wait. Good luck!!

                  I tested July 19, 2008. The proctor said we were testing for Jan/Feb 2009 academy. This has to be true given how long Memphis takes to process applicants. Does anybody know how difficult the hiring process is? How important is credit, general background..etc. Each police department has a different hot and cold issue(s) that's important to them when selecting applicants. I know Washington DC is Education/Credit

                    Just got the call today! October 13th start date, processing September 30th. Does anyone know what kind of clothes you should wear to the processing day? I would assume suit and tie?

                            I am interested in MPD. I know MPD doesn't have any type of expedited testing for people out of state, but how many times does will I have to fly to Memphis to complete the application process and how is it broke up? Also im alittle confused about the application. Is the application that is on the Memphis Police website the application and the personal history packet?
                            Yeah the application and the history packet need to be submitted before they let you test. Then you will go down and do the 2 written tests and the ppt on the same day. If you pass those they will contact you with a conditional offer of employment and schedule your psychological exam (MMPI) and your medical physical (standard physical and cardiac stress test). Between all the testing and the physical/psych you will probably be contacted by a background investigator from the training academy. After that you will wait a while. After that comes the final offer. I know that with the current academy they have us going down there for "processing" about 2 weeks prior to the academy. I am also from out of town by about 8.5 hours and I didn't consider it totally unreasonable. Also I found it to be a great experience because if you are trying to get a job somewhere that you will be at for possibly 30+ years, you enjoy being able to experience what the place is like before you commit yourself to that.
