Hey guys, I just wanted to give everyone a little update on where I'm at in the process of becoming an officer.

 


I am currently in the process with the AZ DPS, I have oral boards coming up this next week.


I am also currently in the process with the Peoria P.D. and will be taking my physical/written test tomorrow as well as doing my oral boards so long as all the other tests go well.


I hope everyone else out there is doing well, take care!

Good luck, a piece of advice an old sergeant gave me right before I went in to my very first oral interview forty years ago.  Right before he opened the door he leaned over and said, "son just remember while you are in there they can't eat you they can't kill you and the can't steal your bow tie". I wasn't wearing a bow tie but it made me smile as he opened the door to reveal a room that the lowest ranking officer there was a captain, the Chief of Police sat at the end of the table from me. I got hired.

Well, I have completed the physical, written and oral boards for both departments and I am now just waiting to hear back. I should get results back from DPS within 10 days according to the human resources department and should find out all of my test results as well as if I am moving on to the background and what number I am on the eligibility list.


As far as Peoria is concerned, I am just waiting to hear back from them in general, I received no instruction from them regarding timelines or things of that nature so of course, as with all departments it's time for the waiting game. Hurry and wait! Thanks for your support and continued guidance PoliceLink!

Heard back from DPS yesterday, and thankfully they had good news! I received a 91 on my written and a 94 on my QAB's which landed me in spot 18 on the eligibility list! So, hopefully the background, poly and all go well and I'll be starting Academy in November Lord willing. Thanks guys!

They are filling academies starting in November and ending in June of 2014 so it sounds as if anywhere from 50-100, with the academies being 20-25 people.

Sounds like (barring unforseen issues) you should be getting into the academy fairly soon! Good Luck, Study Hard!

Yes, that is the hope!


I do not have any criminal history, drug use, etc. I had some small financial issues about 7 years ago when I was young, stupid and in college but I have paid all my debt and cleared it all up.


But, despite that, there are many people who look great on paper and still do not make it. So, I am trying to remain optimistic but at the same realistic realizing that anything could throw me from the process and I would have no explanation.


Oh, the beautiful mess it all is!

Well, I took my first poly (with another dept.) and failed. The administrator said that I was hiding something from her concerning my history with drugs, which is kind of ironic considering I have never done drugs, seen drugs and I can't even tell you what pot smells like.


I was hoping that this poly would put my nerves at ease for the one with DPS but I think it may have made them worse.


But, all I  do at this point is continue to be 100% truthful and honest and know that I am doing everything I can! It doesn't do any good to worry more or stress, it's not going to get me anywhere!

Sorry to hear your first poly didn't go well. Seems like you got a great attitude during this process, Keep on trying, and being honest (goes without saying), and I am sure you will be able to get into the academy.

Well, I took my polygraph this past Tuesday with the Az DPS. It was a lot better than the first polygraph I took with the MCSO. The sir doing the testing was very professional and courteous. However, the results were inconclusive? I am not sure what this means but he said that he could not give an accurate reading. After talking with me a while he felt as if it was because I have guilt over what I have done in my past.


HR said that they would either schedule another poly or move me on to the drug testing so I guess it's time to sit and wait again. I was a little disheartened at the results as I gave it all I had and was 100% truthful, but I guess thats life sometimes. I'll let you guys know as soon as I hear something.
