    Hey fellow Mitten-er =P I just got my start date (this coming Thursday), and I turned in my app in early November. You really really need to give them a call if you are serious about it. Let them know how long it has been, and that you have been patient. Or just show up at the next recruiting event (they are like every week). Best of luck!

    Feb 10th: conditional offer
    Feb 16th: Psych. Interview and Medical
    now just waiting on final offer...I'm an out of state applicant so I figured my process would take a while anyways. But good luck!
    Hey, we did our psych and medical around the same time (I did mine 2/28), just wondering if you got your final offer. I was called by the Sgt. last Saturday. Hope you hear soon!

    When I was talking with the Sgt., he said he would be out of town at an event the week I process in (This coming week), so perhaps that is why you havnt gotten a call. I also confirmed the other day with my BI that I am still on for Thursday, and he knew all the details. Maybe you should call your BI and follow-up? I dont know how close other people are with their BI's, but mine has been amazing. I can call him any time with just silly questions and he does everything he can to help. He stopped by at my CVSA to say hi. I injured my hand (in a stupid accident), and he was genuinely upset that I was being set back =P Anyway, I'm sure you will get the call soon!

    You need to call the office and ask to speak with the Lt.

    I went to their recruiting event in February of 2011 and finally got a phone call last week. This was after several attempts of calling them to which they would always say "be patient". In the mean time, I had already gotten hired by a great department, their loss...

    All I can say is be very, very patient... As in a years worth of patience. And yes, I was an out of state applicant.

    I'm in the same boat - I went in April of last year.....still no call....haven't bothered calling again in a while because I'm not sure I want to work for them anymore....

    Look, I was originally an out of state (I have been in GA since Dec.), however, I followed up with them about 3 months after putting my application in. And then I kept calling back ever week or so. If you really want a job, you push for it. I know I was a highly competitive applicant (I have a BA, MA, and lots of work exp.), but I was the one who kept pushing. They want to see that you will follow up. You arent following up all that much. You keep posting about how long it has been, and even the recruiter on the forum told you to call the LT. The small background unit at APD processes literally thousands of apps a year. You have to make yourself stand out. I know contacting them can be really frustrating (I just went through it), but its worth it. I processed in today, and am really excited to be working for such a large law enforcement agency. Sure, Ill probably be on admin duty for 5-6 months, but its full time pay with benifits! In this economy... I count it as a blessing. Bottom line: yes, it can be a slow process, but it is what you make of it. Why dont you try applying to NYPD and get back to us about that process... that is in 2 years when they finally figure out they got your app in the mail :P Talk about a long process. I know people who were still trying to get hired there after FOUR years! Just saying...

    I'm very happy for you girl!!! I'm excited for anyone who makes it, but yea I guess that is what I might have to do also. Well I already planned on calling them last week but never got to it but will definitely call my BI in the a.m. But congratulations again to all of you who made it!! :-)

    If they told me, right off the bat that I wouldn't be receiving a phone call for a year, then you might have a point. However, the recruiters told me they'd call me within a couple of weeks. And even trying to get a real person (who knows what they're talking about) on the phone is a feat in and of itself. Again, it makes no difference to me, in fact I'm much happier with the agency i'm with now anyway. My biggest gripe with them is their outright lack of communication.
