The deadline is March 28th.

There is no residency requirement for taking the exam, ie the Buffalo PD exam. You just need to meet the residency requirements at the time of hire.

I was just looking over the application and they want 3 professional references. I have been working in a factory for the past 14 years, where am I going to come up with 3 professional references?

cjrudy = yeah, that's got to be tough. See if you can call the HR dept. at 181 Ellicott St. and ask them what to do. I mean, I'm sure they would understand if you did not have three for that reason.

chktovegas = the mall has expanded, they got a cheese cake factory now! They have new stores and places to eat it's real nice. They have windmills on lake Erie now, but they don't work, and the Bills are moving to Toronto.

took the pt test... detective said they are looking at the "top" 20-30 candidates... any idea how they decide who are the top 20-30?? Up to this point, all testing was pass/fail.
