    Yes, sir! Thank you very much. I showed up for my fingerprinting, etc for the special events position in a shirt and tie, nice, pressed pants and shined shoes (thank you, police academy) and the other person for the job was in a nice shirt and jeans with holes. Both got the job but the impression is the important part. I am there to stand out in the best way possible and that is information I got from this thread. So thanks!

    Down to my final week (after tomorrow) of the academy and today I can say that I am hired as a part time special event officer for a local mid-large sized agency while my background investigation continues for a full time sworn position. I just wanted to extend a thanks to everyone for all of their insight. Still have a lot to go through... CVSA, PAT, Psych and Oral Board but I have employment with the department which is a crucial step. Thank you again

    I am 5 classroom weeks away from graduation. I have tried my hardest to do just this. There are guys in there do nothing but run their mouth, act like know-it-alls... my class has been praised for being the highest recruited and the most skilled but criticized for the amount of in-fighting we have. I am trying my best to fly under that radar, haven't failed or re-mediated anything... Just carrying on and avoiding the boatloads of drama. A lot of the tips from the officers on this site have helped a lot (particularly the one bit of information about having 2 ears and 1 mouth, I feel that it has helped greatly). I am currently being recruited by one of the biggest departments in the area and am handing in my application this week. Expect more questions during the hiring process.

    I didn't think so, but wasn't sure about the terminology/connotation, definitely don't want to wash out early though... or at all haha

    I'm not sure if that was negatively addressed towards me but I am just trying to take this whole thing in stride. I'm excited and I want to do my best, of course and I do have passion for this, but I'm not singling out anyone or trying compare to them or anything like that.

    Thanks a lot for the advice, guys and love reading the other stories on the site as well! Appreciate it!

First day is Aug 25, currently ordering uniforms and books and then starting up. Very excited about this but thanks for the suit advice, fellas... Definitely stood out in a good way
