  • Dallas PD Academy

    The thread for what's new with Dallas PD was getting way too long. The next class starts May 11, 2011. They are planning on a class size of 35. They are still planning on starting classes in August and September with roughly 35 in each as well.

      How long does the hiring process take in Dallas? Is it possible to make the August class? Are the real estate prices around Dallas reasonable?

        Real estate in general in TX is low compared to rest of the country, and definitely California.

            It's probably going to slow down a lot more then it has been. When I hired on it took about a two months to get the good word. Now it's about 6-12 months. And now we're being told that we're going to need to cut another 10% from our budget... so there's talk about a hiring freeze...

                  I tested back in August '10. Just waiting to get scheduled for my med/psych. I take it all the slots for the May academy are filled then? Last time I spoke with DPD Personnel they were still unsure about one and May, but kept mentioning August and September (as long as City Council does not ax everything).

                    6 to 12 months. WTF, what takes them so long?

                      Well, they have only about 80 slots this year and probably close to 2K people applying. They have to be very thorough this time around, since it's looking like this will be the last batch to go through the academy for some time...

                      When I went through, they were hiring 400 at a time...

                      Edit to add: Also, the med/psych needs to be as close to the start date of the academy as possible... so you may pass everything up to that point, but you need to wait for the academy. They're only running 3 this year, before they had one starting every 6 weeks.

                          Latest word is that the May 11 class is a go and will have 23 recruits. The other classes scheduled for this year are still in doubt.
