  • How long do I give...

    Through the steps of becoming an Officer... How much time does it take on an average to hear back after you go over the PHS/Background info with the hiring SGT. How long before you get called in to do the Polygraph or even told that your not being called in? Thanks

    I took me almost two years to get hired, and based off my personal experience, the time frame varies from angency to agency. It could be a matter of days, weeks, or months before you hear any thing. For example, I turned in my PHS to one police agency in July '07 and I STILL haven't gotten a response. Not that it matters any more because I was recently hired by a different agency.

      You may NEVER hear from them again. This actually happened to me last year with an agency that completely had me believing I was good to go with them...they recruiter actually told me, "Don't apply anywhere else!" God, have I wanted to write them and/or call them and ask WHAT HAPPENED? But I am on the verge of starting with a much closer (geographically) and better paying agency. And, I have taken enough ride alongs to know that I actually get along with most of the people there...so I am psyched!
      Anyway, as long as you have an active application, there is nothing that says you cannot call them and ask, "Can I know my status?" Some might think that it too forward, but all they can ever say is NO.
