    After a 6 month process I got the call Monday morning that I had been accepted. I already signed my acceptance letter and been fitted for my Academy Uniforms. I start processing on the 18th with the Academy starting the 25th. I feel pretty good, out of the 175 people that tested in my cycle they only hired 20 and I made the cut. Now the hard part begins. :bigthumb:

    Side Note: I am prior service Air Force.

    Congrats. Are you going on with the Vegas PD? I'm in the hiring process with a department here in AZ, but I'm hoping to get a spot in a January academy, and not sooner. The wife comes home in Sept-Oct from iraq and we're taking a vacation.

    i'm doin an internship at a police academy now. it's not very physically demanding after the first few weeks but the material covered in class can be overwhelming.

    have you had any college level CJ classes?

    Congrats! Why was the process 6 months? Is that typical, and what all did you have to do?

    Some departments can do it sooner. Its around a 3 month process for mine, others is 6 or so. Generally the process is as follows: written exam, physical exam, oral interview board, background investigation, polygraph exam, medical exam, offer of employment.

    As you can see it's quite a lengthy process.

    It is only a stereotype because it is true.

    Now, Dunkin or Krispy Kreme?

    Nixtress thats your answer there :)

    My department doesnt hire as much as the other one here, there process is 3-4 months max. But they are hiring 450 officers a year. I think mine will only be hiring 40.

    Congrats man. I'm a prior SP. I decided, however, to go another route professionally. Good luck to you.

    remember, OC is the gift that keeps giving :mamoru2:

    and if you don't take the full 5 seconds + probes from the taser, you're not a man :squint:
