    No, I know the written is on the 23rd and 24th of this month. I'm trying to be optimistic since they still have about 2 weeks to send out letters.

    I think people had until the 3rd to submit paperwork so it will probably be some time at the end of the week or next week when they send them out.

    Tater401, when did you submit your app? I got mine in on the 30th. I just happened to check the dept website with 1 day to spare. Then I had to send in a copy of my diploma on the 3rd. I am hoping to hear from them soon!

    I got a phone call about the test on the 23rd.

    Anyone know what the PT test consists of?

    Thanks & good luck
    I am not afraid... I was born to do this.

    well, I tried to google it. I found a link that had the detention officers physical. Not sure how up to date it is but here is the link. http://www.apostc.state.al.us/Portal...y%20Course.pdf

    PT test contains an obstacle course that must be completed in 90 secs. 22 push ups in 1 min. 25 sit ups in 1 min. 1.5 mile run in 15:28 secs. The test is not that bad but I have heard Hoover does not just want the minimums.

    push a car 5 yards, run 25 yards to a 6ft wall, run 25 yards to a window that you climb through, run to a balance beam and across it, and drag a dummy that weighs 185lbs.

    That's it (though I thought I remembered the car push being 10 yrds and the dummy being 160 lbs, I could be mistaken though). That's APOSTC standard, not unique to Hoover PD's hiring process.

    Does anybody know if you have previous experience and are certified in another state if they will put you in the full academy or the 80hr refresher course?

    If you are certified and are actively working as a LEO, they will send you to the refresher. If there is any gaps in employment, there may be issues with the status of your certification.

    Your profile says you're a current sworn fed LEO and former local LEO. If you're a fed LEO that is FLETC trained (whether uniformed LE or 1811) you should be fine, APOSTC regulations on this - which apply to Hoover PD and other AL agencies - can be found here: http://www.apostc.state.al.us/Portal...hapter%204.pdf (scroll down to Rule 650-X-4-.03 (5)(b))
