    I work a Loss Prevention job and I just applied for the Fort Worth PD. I know and understand that the loss prevention experience will not give me any type of edge in the process. But I do have a very good rapport with the officers that I work with. I was wondering if there was any sort of "putting a good word in for me" type of thing.

    Thanks.

    If they're asked, I'm sure they'll say something about you. It's doubtful that they'll run up to HR and say "Hey that guy DTM is a helluva guy, he should definitely be hired".

      Remotely possible at some stage in the process, although I wouldn't count on it. You'll need to test well in all phases of the process. No doubt, the competition will be pretty stiff, given the economy, etc.In the "weighted" phases of the process, which are usually the written and oral exams, you need to score in the high nineties to be competitive. The remaining aspects of the process are usually pretty much "pass-fail".

        If you made it to the background process, maybe. How much are these guys actually going to be able to say about you? Probably not much. What is more important is what the store manager is going to say about you.
