    CSP applicants - What is your status???

    Hi, CSP applicants!
    What is your current status? I knew that this is going to be long process,,but it truly is.

    This is my timeline so far.

    11/19/2008 Sent application
    12/11/2008 Got email - permission to take written exam
    1/7/2009 Took Written exam (@ Golden)
    2/12/2009 Got Written Score (69/75, 72/72-Self Certification)
    No news since then..

    I was told that I am considered for July academy if everything is going well.
    I realized that next week is May already,,but I am not even in Phase II yet.

    Is anybody in the same boat?? (aim for July academy?)

    Good luck to everyone!

    I just got an email today 10 minutes ago - saying that I successfully move into phase II. That is weird. I was waiting for long time, and I just got it after I posted this!
    Email also says that "Please be patient" several times...

    Webfur - Good luck on your exam! I also recommend you to schedule for ride-along with CSP. It was great experience to me. Also you can get more inside information from trooper!

    Hi, welcome aboard!

    I like CSP because they work with applicants very well. (based on applicants' situation)

    Good luck!!!

    I missed a phone call from background investigator yesterday (Saturday) morning. I did not expect that early contact (3-4 days after got email) because the email said it will take some time to be contacted due to delay of process.

    Anyway, it is my fault to miss that important call, now I bring my phone even to bathroom.

    VAslim16,
    I found my hotel from priceline for $38 per night when I was there. (3.5 star-Renaissance Denver - It was Great deal!) We stayed 2 nights as well & really enjoyed the hotel even if it took about half-hour to go to Golden.
    Good luck~!

    CSP website states they are not accepting anymore applications, and to wait till August for more information. I wonder where that puts us.

    Yup the July academy has been cancelled, however the January 2010 may still be a possibility. At least that is what I was told.

    My question is, for the ones who have their apps in already, are they still going put us through the process, or do we have to re-apply when they begin accepting apps again?

    Just spoke with an 8 year CSP vet today...he said no academy at least until 2010. Sorry guys Denver is the same way right now. I hope you guys get on a priority list so you can make it in when they run the next academy. Good luck to you!

    The state is hurting bad right now. They had to cut the state budget several hundred million dollars to balance it. I think most state employees are being forced to take unpaid furlough days next year not sure if it will affect troopers or not. Most local departments are going through the same thing. Our city is predicting a 3.7 million budget shortfall next year so I'm sure they are either going to lay some city employees off or have to reduce pay it really sucks right now. Hopefully some local agencies will start hiring when the federal COPS grants start getting approved later this summer. I know we are hoping for money for three spots if we don't get approved definitely won't be hiring this year or next.

    I'm always surprised when people don't want to say what agency they work for. But no problem.
