  • Probabilities…

    Out of 100 PD applicants, what percentage of them are typically dropped due to failing their polygraph, BI, psychological exam/interview, drug & medical screenings, or just generally dropping out of the hiring process?

    I'm one of 253 applicants vying for 1 of 70 academy seats and would like to know my chances numbers wise. I have passed all of the above, just waiting on the chiefs final selections.

    If you've done polygraph, psych, and medical, then I'd assume that you've already received a conditional offer of employment. That pretty much means, unless YOU got disqualified because of one of those things, you should have the job. Police departments don't spend money on people they don't intend to hire (assuming all goes well in the costly part of the process).

        That is pretty close to what I have seen in the last few years in my area
        Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

          Only 253 applicants for 70 spots?

            If I remember correctly, there were just under 600 that took the written test and oral interviews. The more I read on this forum, the more confident I feel about my chances.

                ^ This.

                On average, every step in the hiring process will weed out 50% of the applicant pool. For departments around me that means roughly 1.5% to 3% of applicants make it through. Then you need to pass FTO.

                With only 253 candidates for 70 spots, obviously the chances are higher. Although, any intelligent department would simply leave the spots unfilled rather than filling with suboptimal candidates. My department constantly weeds out the entire hiring pool. We are never at full staffing...

                kind of like every other department.
