Does it matter if I write my acceptance letter with pencil and paper
I’m not really sure, my guess is you would have to do it in pencil

so do you think it would be smart to defer if you have scored 99.87 and are number 16 on the cert. since im a non vet would i be beat out by all the vets on this cert? I dont understand how vet pref works. what do you think the best option would be?
I wouldn’t defer if I were you. Just because I wouldn’t know which department will certify me down the line. I would just stick to the department that certified you until you get a cert from a different department. From what I’ve read you’re allowed to accept more than one cert at a time. Just make sure you reply to the cert within five days, if you don’t respond they will take you out of the eligible pool for that particular job (in this case police officer).

Veterans preference works like this, it is disabled veterans first, then veterans and lastly non-veterans. So this means even if you got a 99.87 there is probably going to be a vet with a 74 ahead of you. Congrats on the score though, it’s incredible how you’re on rank 16 without being a disabled vet/vet this early.

If you send a letter accepting a cert does that take you off of the the lis for other departments? I don't want to accept a cert for a town and have that disqualify me from getting a cert from others because if i am not chosen then that just delays the process entirely.
From what I’ve read before, it does not take you off. I’ve read about people who accept all the certs and just wait until which department hires them first. What’s your score if you don’t mind me asking? It all depends about your score and where you live also. I would hate to decline a cert and then not get a cert from another department down the line.

99.07 non-vet. I honestly have no idea how any of this process works. I assume the response letter has to be hand written, you wouldn't happen to know that would you?

Nice! If I were you I would respond in a typed format like this...

"I am responding to Certification #_________. At this time, I would like to accept my consideration for the position of police officer for _________ Police Department.”

Once you get a cert you will be given a rank. Depending on your rank you will start with the normal procedure such as background investigations, etc...

Being certified does not mean you will be hired, but if you’re reachable on the list you will be considered. Basically a department can certify 30 people for 5 spots. A lot of people fail the background investigation or withdraw from the list, so don’t let it discourage you.

Try to type it if you can . I type it on my phone and print it out at staples . If can’t type use pen black or blue ink. Pencil is a no go .

Accepting certs will not impact your eligibility with other hiring agencies. However, not responding to a cert, even if you are not interested COULD remove you from all eligible pools. A lot of times it wont matter if you don’t reply to something but other agencies will remove you from the eligible pool completely for not replying at all. So moral of the story is ALWAYS reply to a cert.

Idk where anyone is getting the handwritten thing from. I’ve always replied to certs in a typed up letter and left space for it to be printed and signed by myself at the bottom. I then would mail it in (preferably certified mail that way you can track it and there is evidence you sent something to them in case it is not received)

I passed it a 76 which got me highly disappointed due to the fact that I took corrections last year and got an 88. No clue what happened this time around but I’m staying positive regarding the process. A family of mine told me that after the certs and accepting there are a few steps like BI, psych tests, interviews with the recruiting officer from the chosen PD. He basically told me to be patient that it takes a while before the academy begins. Good luck to those who are still waiting and congrats to those who have received certs.

I always thought that the cert response could be either or, thank you for clearing that up for me!
