  • Chesapeake vs Norfolk vs VA Beach

    I've always wanted to apply to Chesapeake, VA Beach, and Norfolk Police Depts but can't decide which dept I think is best to pursue.

    (I would apply and pursue all three if I could afford it, but on a 7 eleven hourly wage I can't afford to consistently travel up for all 3 processes.)

    If you could pick one of the three, which one would you pick and why? Thanks guys.

    Are you coming from another state? VB combines steps for out-of-state applicants. Only 3 trips are needed.

      I'd stay with chesapeake or vb. although I've heard you have more freedom at chesapeake such as chases and such. I have friends that work at both places and there are pros and cons to each just like any department/job etc.

          Thanks for sharing that. I had no idea about an arena being built.

          I've been told by multiple people that Norfolk will get me the experience in 1-2 years that would take me 4-5 years in VA Beach, but VA Beach just seems like such a quality city (safe for family, clean, good schools.)

            At most it would be more along the lines of 2 years vs 1 year. You'll stay plenty busy at VB.

              Does this mean the July 2014 academy is in jeopardy?

                I can't say for sure since I'm not in the loop, but they've been saying for the last few years they want to have bigger academies so I imagine that's what the article was alluding to.

                  I talked to LETA today-- the 2014 academy is still on and final offers could be made until June 7.

                    I'm wondering how big both these Norfolk/VB July academies will be...

                              Does anybody know what Shifts and pay chesapeake has? I have been looking into Va Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and suffolk. Va Beach seems to have the beset schedule and pay starting out. Norfolk promotions seem easier though. VA beach, being 4 days on 3 off seems really nice.
