Disappointed

"You give me a "donut" and it turns out to be only a toy!"

I know many readers of this blog are disappointed about the lack of academy classes scheduled for this year. Many of you have written emails wanting to know how come you have not been called in for an interview yet. If you have not read this post, please click here: http://www.hpdblog.com/2009/12/recruiting-unit-and-academy-class.html

The good news is that we are still accepting applications and still want you to apply. Apply online at www.hpdcareer.com and get into the system. Time really does go by very quickly. Before you know it, you will be getting the call to come in for an interview. As the economy improves employment numbers will go up. Funding for future classes could come about at anytime and it will be to your best interest to already have an application on file. Hang in there, I promise you that being a police officer for the City of Houston is well worth the wait!

Thank you for todays post Officer Mccoy. I want to be a police officer so bad I can taste it. Hopefully things will change soon and you guys will start hiring more people in the future. In the mean time I will finish my degree and patiently await for my interview. HPD is worth the wait!

I appreciate the post today, and everyday, Officer McCoy. You do a FANTASTIC job on the blog and it really keeps me motivated as I am making my way through the recruiting process. I especially enjoyed looking back at months past and discovering the Webisodes about the police academy. Just when I was getting impatient, it put the FIRE back in me!! What an awesome way to give recruits an inside look into the police academy... it is much appreciated. Thanks again and keep up the great work!
