      Hi there, everybody's background is different. I've read someone's took about a week. I think a 1-2 months are more common. Mine took from August 22- November 2.

      Jane0225 It can take 3 weeks to 3 months.. just depends. everyone's background is different. But good news is that HPD is back to normalcy, and most likely it will be done in under 2 months.

    anair That’s not true. They made us females do the same form of push-ups like the males.

          Thanks a lot. I am kinda worried about the push ups? Do they give retakes or if I fail will they allow me to redo it again?

            anair No retakes. During testing maintain consistency... in order to do them fast don't give it all you got and get burnt out in the middle of it.. be slow if you have to... you will have no problem doing it. Good Luck!

            Hello everyone. I’ve finally registered so I can post on this thread. I’ve been hawking this thread since I started my process and was really hoping for the November class. That didn’t happen, so I’m shooting for the Jan class now. I’m currently in background but I haven’t heard anything yet. I passed my polygraph Oct 4th or around there.

            Regarding pay, according to the website cadet pay is 42000, as well as probationary officer, correct? Someone that’s in the academy now, how much are your checks each pay period?

            I’m just as excited as before to get in, and I hope to hear back soon!!!



            Edit: Concerning push ups, proper form goes a long way. Make sure you’re not shooting your elbows out at a 90 degree angle when you’re going down or pressing up. Look up some videos of form and practice it. If you have asthma, make sure to puff up before running! And don’t be like me and be one of the last ones to run the 200m.... I didn’t get a lot of rest before the 1.5mile.

              The new 2 year agreement which Mayor Turner approved is going into effect on July 1st 2019, which means class #240 pass outs (probationary officers) may start at $43680.

          • #38
            The pay is approximately $1600-$1700 before taxes, insurance, ect... after taxes should be somewhere around $1300 depends on how you fill out your tax forms.

            P/S: For the push-ups. Make sure you do more than the minimum because DT instructors would give "love" when you get into the academy on your first day. So don't try to aim for the minimum.

                  I am an out of town on the fast track. I chose the 2 day option due to not being able to take more time off work This is my timeline:


                  Phase 1 -- Aug 3
                  Phase 2 -- Oct 22 (passed)
                  Phase 3 -- Oct 23 (passed
                  Phase 4-- I have yet to hear from a BI.

                  Just a waiting game for now.

                  Good luck to you. I missed out on the last 2 classes due to not being done with the process .Im finally finished everything. I'm been in the process since April. It seems like they are moving much faster than before. So anything is possible.
