    The beauty of the GI Bill with the academy/Phoenix, is that you get your GI Bill throughout the academy, and then you also get it for your "time in training" as an OIT (officer in training, through FTO) and then your whole first year on probation, as it is still technically a time of training....

    They won't typically do that...they will just have you start "working" when you start the academy basically. Though reading your other post, it seems they are getting you to working in Code Enforcement for a few weeks prior. That's nice!...

  • Yes, it is a one on one interview with the investigator. They will go over the AZPOST packet that you filled out, ask you a bunch of other questions, get real deep into your entire past, and then if all goes well, get you fingerprinted and then set you up for your polygraph interview....

  • That's great, congrats! It can seem like a long process at times, so be patient. Having said that, Phoenix is really in need of as many officers as they can hire right now, so the hiring process has gotten very streamlined. Other agencies take longer as they don't have the great necessity. But it...

    Yeah like Dan said, basically they lied, and it did not come up until the AZPOST audit. It could also be something came up on their drug screen or something like that. The results of those I know for me were not back until several weeks into the academy. I guess they are willing to take that risk....

    Dan you are in class 500, right? That was crazy how many you guys lost, so early on! Integrity really is the cornerstone of law enforcement. You can do almost anything in law enforcement and keep a job, but you lie, and you are out. It really is as simple as that. Stay transparent, self report...

    Real quick... The best answer though is, as quickly as they want to and can get you into a class.

    You won't be getting the "no thanks" letter at this point. You should have signed your conditional waiver, right? Your final will be real quick. I know when they scheduled me for a class, it was literally cramming me into a class where the slot just happened to be open, and it was in like...

    They try and get it all in place as quick as they possibly can for you. I had several guys in my class with pregnant wives about ready to pop, and they were able to get everything in place pretty quickly. They were very accomodating.

    Hey I see you know a lot about phoenix pd so i figured you might have the answer to the question that I'm looking for. I start the academy with phoenix soon, and my wife is pregnant so I was wondering if you'd happen to know how long the insurance takes to kick in ?

    I actually have a friend currently employed with SVPD down there. He has been with them for many years. It is a very small department. He considered lateraling to Tucson PD, but decided to stay on with them. Not much opportunity for growth, but it sounds like a steady paycheck.

    The AZ retirement system is good. At this point you can retire @ 25 years of service with 65% of your highest 5 years average. For every year after that you can add on another 2.5%, with a maximum of 80%. You also get retirement medical benefits. It's a pretty nice perk....

    If you have applied for them, write it down. Period. If you simply send in the application but didn't go do anything after that or follow through, still fill it out. The more info you give the better. Like BlueLinerAZ said, be as transparent as possible....

    Wow you failed to list 3 jobs?? I would say that is going to look suspicious. Maybe you will get lucky though??

    replied to Background interview
    The only answer that can be given is "maybe...maybe not" It will all be up to your background investigator. I would think probably not though. That can be an honest mistake when recalling the past....
