In the academy now, graduation for us is in 1 week, you start December I believe and it’s 1200 for just the gear and then you have to get a duty rig, holsters, and a bunch of other stuff. They will give you a packet before you’re hired with everything you need. Also deff working before going is better this is an amazing job but it’s not for everyone.

Rank #13

I finished psych on the 29th. However my phone number has changed since so I was wondering if they call you or email you with the psych results and how soon? I will notify them of my contact info change after the weekend. Thanks

Pt is tough I am in shape and had a hard time, my best advice is to run everyday and do you’re pushups other wise you will be DISMISSED! It happens, don’t let anyone say they will just pass you cause they won’t, you have a to earn it. I won’t get into the instructors cause I don’t want to spoil any surprises. All I can really say was I enjoyed my time and I’m gonna miss it. Just remember to sound off and move with a sense of urgency and practice holding you’re gears bags the day you get them.

Nothing yet , I’m still waiting, had psych last Tuesday. Hopefully we hear something soon , academy is suppose to be December 13th but that doesn’t sound accurate since that’s a Friday and a week and some change from the holidays. I feel like they’re are going to push it to January.

Don’t worry about the start date brother , I heard they 100% pushed it to January so we are in the clear. Thanks for the reply
