    Took the first test for SFPD and passed, a simple English test. Got the oral interview in a couple weeks and then a physical test on the 28th. From what I've learned, the physical is a quick obstacle course which has you sprinting and ducking under low bars, jumping a 4ft wall, more bars, pushing a football pad, and then running it again but pulling a 150lb dummy instead of the football pad, all within 35-45seconds. If you don't make it in the allotted time, you have to do as many sit-ups as you can in 2 minutes, followed by a stationary pedal bike for 2 minutes. Not much of a physical, but I need work.

    Now I'm a big dude, 6'4 and 360lbs. I've actually lost about 20lbs so far, trying to eat healthier and work out. Picked up a mountain bike and been doing some trails and hitting the SF hills for stamina.

    If I DO pass the physical, I need to drop a shit load of weight. For my height, I think I need to weigh 230-240lbs max. So I guess this is the beginning of my progress thread. Let's see what I can accomplish in the 3 weeks till my physical first. Any tips/encouragement greatly appreciated.

    sounds like you have a lot of work ahead of you. Read all the stickies at the top of the forum and then if you have more specific questions, post them up.

    No idea. A google search turns up images that look familiar but I don't really see them much.

    Honestly, I'd rather a whopper :mamoru:

    Local DD just was on a dirty dinning list, apparently they found mold growing in the glaze they were using.

    Lots of sprints in various distances will help you drop those extra pounds. Although 3 weeks is quite short to get ready for this, you can set up a tight regiment to stay active. Low level cardio in the mornings will help.

    Good luck.

    good luck in SF. They have a really long waiting list which in the end might be good for you. My buddy has been waiting since last year and I've been waiting for Oakland for about 9 months

    Oakland is laying people off so I wouldn't expect much.

    Most police departments are taking multi million $$ price cuts, why anyone would go into that field is beyond me.

    Yeah they're slowly moving south. They'll take over america before long.

    Good coffee/snacks chain, reasonably priced.

    I know many Oakland high level guys. Most of them say they don't expect any real hiring for at least 3 or 4 years.
