  • Houston Police Academy, January 2019

    Just wanted to get in touch with people who recently tested for HPD and see where we are in the selection process.

    Phase 1 -- July 09th.
    Phase 2 -- July 23rd.
    Phase 3 -- Sept 10th.
    Phase 4 — Oct 24th - Nov 21st.
    Phase 5 -- (Psych) Nov 28th & (Med) Nov 30th.
    Dec 20th — All phases passed and waiting for final approval from the Chief.
    Jan 14th -- Disapproved by Chief.
    Jan 15th -- Wrote a letter to reconsider disapproval.
    Jan 25th -- Disapproval stays! Time to move on to a better department.


    No further updates!

    @gabu This process I noticed is very slow.

    Phase 1 -- Mar 22nd
    Phase 2 -- Apr 2nd
    Phase 3 -- Apr 20th
    Phase 4 -- Jun 21st
    Phase 5 -- Aug 10th (Medical)
    Aug 13th (Psych)

    Still waiting to see if I passed the Psych but I thought it was good. If all goes through it might be the Nov Academy but never know.

    Nordy75 I am still waiting for my polygraph to be scheduled... I called them up and was told in about 2 more weeks I should get a call and in weeks time from the call I shall test. That looks like 8 weeks from Phase 2.. phew!! I just hope it doesn't get delayed any further.

    Btw, you are a lucky man.. got Phase 1-2-3 done in under 30 days.. I envy you :P hehe!!

      Hey man congrats on the progress. For perspective, it took me 6 weeks, but they do have a back up in almost every phase after phase 2 right now.

      houstonstrong.. thanks man! still waiting for that phone call.. lol

      if department is that backed up, it needs to stop accepting new applications and process the one's in process first. But who am I to say :P

    Finally got a call from the background investigator and the investigation process has been initiated. Based on the conversation, it seems the process has finally started to pick up pace for everyone in the process.

      Congrats to you for moving forward.
      Hey there when you first started this thread I thought I would be in September or November class. It now looks like January if I get approved. I've been in phase 4 since August 22.

      My timeline:

      April 21 application
      May 10 Phase 1
      May 21. Phase 2
      June 7 Phase 3
      August 22 Phase 4 (Thought it was over 9/27)

      Waiting for Med/Psch

        jlouis Based on the timeline my BI gave me, it seems like HPD is speeding up the process and coming back to normalcy. Nov class is already full... you will be in next class which is starting on Jan 22nd, Class #240.

        You are right I was told if I pass everything else I would definitely be in January class. I'm really hoping I hear something soon for the med/ psych. I hope your background is faster than mine.

        I don’t think it’s on the 21st because of the holiday.

        Great job! daisyoct31 My background investigation started Oct 24th. So basically, I need to sit tight for another 4-8 weeks, depending upon how fast the investigator finishes it, so he can schedule me for medical & psych.

          Gabru, question for you, It's the BI that schedules your med/psych? Is this is the person in control of my file until it goes to the chief? If so I'm really happy about that. My BI has been in contact with me a lot this week so it feels like things are going good for me to be finished with Phase 4 very soon.

      • #9
        jlouis It's BI that schedules medical & psych. He must not have finished your background yet or maybe there was something that had to be dug up deeper, so it took him some time. BI will play god (in a good way ) until your file is complete. Once everything is done and BI will pass it on to Lt., then passed onto Cpt. and finally a complete package is sent to either Chief or Asst. Chief, depending on availability at the time.

          jlouis - let’s just say that I am just a curious guy who happens to ask a lot of questions.

      • #10
        I’m in the beginning stages right now. Almost done with the application. So much information from long ago that’s hard to find. Hopefully it all works out.

          Rob_N_GTX yeah.. it's a lot of paperwork in the beginning. But it's an essential part of getting the job. Please take your time and fill in accurate information, else it may delay or worse at a much later stage. Get everything lined up so you may get in the April academy. Good luck!

          Seems like you’re well on your way to making it in! Congrats. Looks like phase 4 took a exponentially long time.

          Am I the only one that has found format issues with the application? Places where only numbers are allowed but you need to type letters and so forth. I email HPD but haven’t gotten a response. Is there an issue with writing in information once the application is printed?
