 Hello all.   After several months of lurking i finally decided to join.  sorry for the lower case, my phone doesnt want to give me caps for some reason.


a bit about myself.  i am a heavy duty diesel mechanic, by accident.   i have tried to get in several agencies since 21 but only successful once.   unfortunately i had to withdraw due to a negligent driver rear ending me and fracturing my spine.   anyways i did 4 years of work as an under cover security agent, have affected 512 arrests in california ranging from tagging, to robbery.


after my accident h was out of commission for 2 years, but after my second spinal surgery i regained feeling in my legs and went back to work 3 weeks later.  i also work as a volunteer for my local sheriffs office in the coroners office.


i am also currently in process with 2 departments.   one of which i really want since i already work there.   the difference is if they take me i will now be getting paid.


i have been in gackground for over 2 months now and heard nothing.   a buddy of mine got his cut notice in 2 weeks, another buddy got hired and started thw academy already.   so my question is, how long should i wait.  this isnt a pay increase, its more like a dream.  ive wanted this since i wrote a letter to santa claus when i was 6 years old.   now at 32 it seems like i may have waited too long.   my body doesnt like training for the pat tests after 2 spine surgeries.   however i still score high simply because of my drive to make it.    any advice people can give me would be great. 


thanks again, and i look forward to staying with pl for some time.   my fiance is also on here and has been for 5 years

Welcome to P.L. from MT. Good luck Mike it would appear that you have the drive and determination to do this job and to do it right. Call the agency and ask do not see where that would hurt. Good luck once again. Alan
