    I’ve got to keep saying it’s 2019 or I’ll default to writing 2018 haha. Update:
    I’ve passed my medical and psych exams and am currently waiting for final approval. Fingers crossed.

    Happy New Year everyone.

      PowerRanger Out of state candidates usually don't have to attend the Seminar. That's why you probably haven't heard about it.

      MrW4ffles7 See ya tomorrow at the Seminar.

      I believe it varies by the recruitment initiative... but usually it's 4 each year plus lateral academy's.

    There's a facebook group created to allow out of town applicants to view the Seminar for Success Video. Not sure if it's live feed or recording but either way it'll be something helpful. It's called HPD Career Seminar For Success Group and hopefully they are active. https://www.facebook.com/groups/263145061100351/ Check with your BI and see if you can watch it. Hope this helps!

        Sorry to hear that, as far as I was aware the chief approves and denies all files at roughly the same time. Did you ask your background investigator why you were denied? I know alot of people fail the psychological test. Also I thought I seen somewhere that HPD has a appeals hearing if you wanted to appeal the decision, if it's something simple and worth appealing I would definitely give it a shot unless they did away with the appeals, I'm sure someone else on here can clarify that. I'm a out of state applicant so I'm not too familiar with the surrounding Houston area but most major departments train there own people so my advice for you man is to just keep applying, HPD is my second place I've applied so sometimes it takes a little bit to get hired somewhere. Just never give up if it's something you truely want to do, everything will fall into place for us all. Anyways good luck man!

        Apply for other agencies such as Pasadena, and so on. Department within the city will get you a TCOLE or another way is you can get TCOLE from college and apply for the constable. Good luck.

      saintjmj So sorry to hear that brother... sometimes it takes more than one go to get the job.. check with your BI and see why you were disqualified. To my understanding, it's BI that prepares a short summary of your profile that Chief goes through on making his decision. Try again with HPD and apply a few other agencies too.

      PowerRanger Seminar was good... we were about 36 candidates from all walks of life. It was basically about how academy will be, how to ensure we stay away from things that could come in our way down the road... general stuff... but good insight. For me the best part was that I was able to interact with others and the Commander as well. 18 candidates have been approved till date and another 24 are on chief's desk. Total of approx. 75 are going to be hired for class 240.

      Keep checking your email folks, you might hear something tomorrow.

        NA0826 I met a few candidates and they were all approved prior to Christmas. But most of them had applied way earlier than what most of us have done. One was on fast track, so he got his approval quick. So from what I could gauge, most approvals were for people who started testing in April or so and a very few were from our timeline.

      I heard the new hire orientation is January 14th, can anyone confirm that everyone in class 240 will be informed of there approval prior to the new hire orientation?

        You heard it right. Most candidates will be informed about their approval prior to it but we were told that some may be approved after the orientation as well.

              My file hasn't hit the Chief's desk yet. I will be part of the next batch that will be sent for approval next week.

            Hi.
            I completed my phase 1 for HPD but they disqualified my application because of undetected criminal activity which I never had any in my life. I came to United States 7 years ago never had a trouble or any criminal history . I did appeal hearing so I’m having having an appointment this week so do you guys have any idea how this appealing process works!? And What they gonna ask?

              Undetected criminal activity? You probably checked a wrong box in your application or may be they ran a background check on you and found something. Not sure how the process works but most likely they'll call you in to clarify whatever they found. Just be honest about it and hopefully it'll work out for you. Good luck!
