    This is a position that works out well for you twenty something guys & gals, or single people period. Not a great job for those looking to spend quality time with the family. A lot of mandatory OT' so don't let the starting wage deter you....you probably make close to the max salary, if not more your first year with all the OT' available.

    Its a good starting point if your not hired with any agency. Yes you might have overtime but Its sometimes a good thing for a person not working.

    3 years to top pay at $44,899, and it is a guarantee that you will get mandated 3 times a week.. currently i get ordered OT 4 days a week.. that's only because we are short staffed and call volumes are higher than usual.. there is no overtime cap during the summer months and holiday season

    also this is a two part job, in which you have to pass a 911 calltaking class and also a radio dispatching class..... during your first year you are ONLY taking 911 calls.... then you go back to training for radio dispatching... if you do not pass that, then they let you go... you only get one chance to pass during training for all exams... the initial training is two months long

    Seriously considering this... I just took my exam 4300 last month so its a year and a half... would be pretty good RELEVANT experience working the back end before going through the NYPD process. With OT pay isn't half bad either........

    When I took the exam, a few yrs back...

    it was as earlier as within a year, towards 2 yrs.


    Since chon718, says they're hurting...I assume it'll be about the same timeframe.

    For some of us corrections has not called yet so might as well give this a try while we wait. It's better then being a traffic enforcement agent. You indoors also atleast.

    That's why it's ideal for young NYPD recruits, gain some behind the scenes knowledge. Being in-house already can help out, when going through the process. All that mandated OT' can help keep them preoccupied, while keeping their nose clean.

    Yeh, I agree...it's not good for those in school, it's way too time consuming.

    I disagree.its probably the best foot in the door job for anyone wanting to pursue a career in LE. Youll be talking to nypd officers all day- make some connections - build up some city and pension time and get to learn the backbone of the 911 structure.
