I took the NYPD exam in February. I figured it'd be a while before I heard from them, but in today's mail I received a letter stating that I passed the PO exam and that I need to report to the Academy to fill out papers to be eligible for the next class (tentatively starting on July 1st).

Do you have to take other tests? Is that all there is to get into the Academy? Or have you taken all the other tests such as the agility test, etc? Good luck.

Thanks guys. Well I spent the better part pf the day today at the NYPD Academy filling out forms and getting fingerprinted and photographed. The medical exam is set for Tuesday. I have to call my investigator in 10 days and in 2 weeks there is a physical test (You were right Guntoter) which basically is some running, hopping over a 6 foot fence, around barrels, another 5 foot fence, stairs, push/pull a 120 lb sled, more stairs and a dummy drag. It should be fun. [:D]

Passed the medical today. They sure are rushing us through. It took 8 hours, most of it sitting on our butts waiting, but everything went smoothly. Friday I have the written psycological, the next Wednesday the Agility test.

Excellent Vinnie Me and Waverunner were praying you made the next class. Your going to go through the Summer in PT. But then again a killer like you in the shape your in will have no problem. Best of luck and we have to get together before you start. Oh yea like Waverunner said Glock or Sig. I most likely would take the Glock.

Another hellish "hurry up and wait" day. mental note: Parking garages fill up quickly around the Academy. Plan on taking the train on weekdays. Today was the written psycological. 1000+ true and false questions. Actually it was more like 100 of the same question asked over and over again in different ways. Between the lack of sleep and the hunger from siting there for 6 hours, I almost fell asleep 3 times while filling out the answer sheet. So far so good, Tuesday is the Psycological interview, Wednesday is the Agility test.

Just wait till you're doing a 4-12 in the Academy and gym is your first block! By the time you get to your last class (yawn) so, so sleepy! Maybe I'll swing by the academy and visit. Hey palmer, that's what I did. S&W followed by a G26. Still wish I went with a G19

Latest update. So far I've passed the medical, the Agility, and I found out today I passed my Psyche. Wednesday I conclude my sessions with my Background Investigator (hopefully) and I think I should be set. Don't even THINK of tracking me down and trying to take away my cards, Ray. I'm gonna be a spit and polish Flashlight cop.

Congratulations and good luck in the academy. I imagine there will be some stress to it but its not anything you can't get through. The fun is just beginning, you have 20 more years of good times to come. It will never stop being interesting.

Man, talk about totally changing faces. All the investigators, detectives, officers that were so helpful duning the initial screening process seemed to totally wig out once they put their dress uniforms on. Yelling, screaming, cussing. If I wasn't afraid of getting my first card taken away from me I would have been on the floor rolling. It was some sight. We had to sit in a hot auditorium for hours and hours. That combined with us getting up no later than 4 am, well a few guys noded off. I won't lie, I got lucky. I was reading my manual for a bit, holding it up when I dozed off. It dropped and fell on my legs which of course woke me up just as one of the officers was comming up the isle to check for nappers. I think a dozen guys lost their first cards today. One poor guy lost 2 when he wasn't in his seat after a 10 minute break. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, us "probies" have these cards that we must carry with us at all times. If we get caught doing something not up to par, we loose a card to the witnessing officer who then sends it in. Something like a 3 stikes and yer out kinda thing. Anyways, I found out we get sworn in three times. Today was technical one, tommorow Mayor bloomberg gives us a "official" swearing in and the Cerimonial Swearing in is when we finally graduate the academy.
