  • Hello from San Diego

    Hello, I have applied for the SDPD. So far I have passed the written and the physical agility test. I am in the process of completing my background packet.

    It is funny as I can already tell each step of the way there is going to be less and less people until the end comes. There was about 70 at the agility test and probaly 10 could not get over the 6ft wall.

    I have done ALOT of research about everything, there is so much I have learned especially from this board. Just wanted to say thanks.

    Compared to what a lot of people are asking about their past I think I will do great. I am 20 and if accepted they will send me through the academy. I am highly motivated and in top shape. Hopefully i may be given the chance to post again about being accepted, wish me luck!

        Reytx, I took the written and thought that I did not pass. A lot of the questions are paragraph based and then you have to answer questions about the paragraph. Sometimes there are two subjects and you have to pick the best answer, which can be hard sometimes.

        Also it is very important that you do not rush yourself, read over stuff a couple times, they will try to trick you. I was one of the last people to finish the test, many walked out when i was half way done

        For me the agility test was easy, I am pretty skinny with a lot of upper body strength. Inquire about practicing the course before you officially do it.

            thanks for the heads up nick20 im actually pretty good at the paragraph questions so I shouldnt have a problem with that. I know how you feel about being one of the last ones to finish i've taken the san diego sheriff, la sheriff and riverside sheriff tests and I was one of the last ones on all of those but so far I've passed san diego and la still waiting on riverside. The pat test shouldn't be too hard either im an active duty marine, do you know where I can get a video of the sdpd pat test?? The one on the website isn't working for me anymore.


            pkagel thanks again for the good luck im already in your yahoo group I checked it out found it to be really useful thanks for setting that up


            nobody33 thanks for the goodluck brother hope to get the job in san diego I really dont care how much they pay or what the city is going through

              Yeah tell me about it, the video doesn't work for me either, but ill talk you through it.

              You start off at some jungle gym thing, you immediatly run up to a ladder that is about 6ft high, climb up some and pull yourbody over it, same with the next one that is 2 ft after the first. Easy

              Next you run probaly 50 ft to some stairs, they are 3 flights you must go up and down touching every step, on your way back up you immediatly run through like 10 cones and then 50ft back to the jungle gym.

              Next you run past the jungle gym and get over a 2ft wall, 4ft wall and the (hard for some) 6ft wall. Some people use all kinds of strategies to get over it... Personally if you cant get over the wall you are a couch potato king and not cut out for the job. Anyways, of course im tired, but i jump up and pull myself over.

              Next you drag a 150lb dummy 12ft then run something like 250ft. If your good you will finish between 2.5 and 3 min the max is 3:30s.

              I had not run in like 2 years and smoked pretty much everyone

                thanks for describing pat it seems really easy im surprised they dont have a 1.5 mile run added onto it, as for the 6 ft wall all someone needs to get over it is confidence and a little upper body strength so yea if you dont have that its prob better to look at a different career

                      Just make sure to pass it on when you get there. It will help your whole class and give you more time to study and/or sleep.

                            It's an open college campus. You can go pretty much anytime. Just as long as the academy isn't using it. Which isn't much.
