    No longer law enforcement but I was military police for six years and a Texas police officer for two when I separated from active duty. I've worked for the U.S. Senate, U.S. State Department and am now finishing my PhD...(too much info?)lol

    • I've got nothing from an investigator. I'm pending oral board. I've passed all tests above 90s so far. The DEA and secret service are moving along quicker than DPS...

        Hahahhaha, DPS does have a very long process without a lot of waiting ... DEA and S.S. ... that’s awesome !

    • Just got recommended for oral board ! January 8th through 11th ! Have to call and confirm that I’ll attend ! But everyone should start hearing something soon too !

          Not I, but I know that's the third party background investigation firm DPS uses. At least that's what my investigator had for her email. She called me directly to set up a meeting, is that what your email is about?

      • The email was requesting additional residencies in order to go back to when I was 17 years old. A TS clearance only goes back 10 years and she said they need to go back 25 years or to when you were 17...

            Standards? What are the DPS standards for the academy??

            What is the material of the shirt (tri blend / cotton)?

            It’s a certain color grey, with letters that measure certain size and honestly printed shirts are better . The iron on letters usually fall off and don’t last . You have to have short sleeves , long sleeves and sweatshirts with your last name and first initial .

            I had no idea. Where did you learn about this? Thanks for the info...

        • Just received an email this morning from DPS to schedule a slot in early January to go to HQ and complete the Boards, and hopefully the psych and physical exams! Anyone else have any updates?

            You bet, hoping for the same man. Did you score well on your testing date? Good luck!

            I got a 61% on the rowing, 93% on the reading, and 82% on the math, what did you score?

            Okay, I know the Sgt. in charge of my testing said nowadays it's tough to get into the academy without a score of 80% or higher on the rower. Then again, I've no clue if that's why there's no progress on your application. Give your recruiter a call and just show your curiosity about where you stand in the process.

            Will do, hopefully it’s just a delay

        • I took my polygraph a month ago and still waiting for the result. Should I be worried?

            When you took your polygraph the investigator should have told you if you got NDI (no deception indicated) or DI (deception indicated). Usually NDI means you "passed"

            • Did they change the fitness requirements for academy entry? I was trying to look up the rower time requirements and all I can find is a new PDF with fitness requirements according to age. Have you guys heard anything?

                They didn’t tell you right away if you passed? I’m still in phase 1 of backgrounds so I wouldn’t worry, I’m sure they’ll get to you.

                • The polygraph examiner told me that I passed and headquarter will review my result. He told me that someone will contact me in less than 2 weeks, but now it has been more than a month.

                    Yes, they went back to 1.5 mile run and sit ups/push ups. You will have percentages based on age and how well you perform.
