Good things come to those who wait...



I know you are overwhelmed by the process, the paperwork, phone calls, physical agility test, psychological test, medical test, and other assorted requests.

Some of you are just "hoping to be overwhelmed" but still have not received the phone call for an interview.

Remember this, it is all worth it, it is all relative. This is an admirable and honorable career you can be proud of. You have a chance to make a difference. It is a three ring circus and you have a front row seat to all the amazing feats.

What can you do NOW to help?

Start by getting all your documents together, make sure your names match exactly on all your documents. Make sure your driver's license is up to date and has the correct address. If you have bills in collection, get hold of your creditors and make payment arrangements. Write down everywhere you have ever worked or lived in the last ten years including addresses and phone numbers. Lose that extra weight you have been hanging on to and start running everyday so you will be in the best shape ever as you enter the academy.

Remember,

Good things come to those who wait...

This is so true because, I believe it and received the phone call and I'm now wearing blue.

Oh, I am so anxious to become part of HPD. I've been wanting this since elementary. I'm going to make As in my criminal justice courses, lose excess weight, gather up important documents, and pray for the acceptance. Officer McCoy, I can't wait for you to see me in blue!!

I am one of the people who are" hoping to be overwhelmed" as Officer McCoy says. I applied on April 28th and still have not heard from a recruiter. Is anyone else having to wait this long? Does this mean my application was not accepted?

Senior Officer M. McCoy said...

It is currently taking six to nine months to be called for an interview once your online application is submitted. Hang in there.
