    One would hope they would take at least that many with another class to follow thereafter. With 40% of the department eligible for 100% of their pension within the next 2-3 years.

    If they are down so many officers, why are they not putting on class after class? Or maybe just maybe using some logic and starting a class with somewhere around 115 new recruits. That way they plan for the usual 20-30 drop out early on in the process, while not leaving a seat empty since one person couldn't handle getting yelled at the first day.

    BPD grabbed the top 640 on their list to send cards too. I was talking to a recruiting coordinator today, they got all the way down to 90 I guess. Pretty crazy to think they got that low. I'm curious if they'll try to put on two academies from this list or start fresh with the 2017 list after establishing people with this academy.

    Two of my professors at bunker hill right now are chiefs of police and both have been saying all semester that anyone who has their residency in Boston has a real good, nearly walk-on shot to get on in the next two years, and that there are 800 or so positions opening up during that period. And I just read in the globe that only 1500 people took the test for Boston this year, so as long as people can not do drugs I think anyone has a pretty decent good shot at getting hired before 2019

    It's my understanding that they WANT to put in another class in this summer. Whether that happens or not is a different story. They are currently processing people

    As long as you can pass a psych test, bpd is the easiest job to get on in the state right now.

    There are quite a few guys retiring but it is not 800. The retirees will not be replaced 1:1. Some units will lose guys to districts hurting for manpower. Cadet program is back and they will get first crack at the job once eligible. Taking laterals again is an option the department will consider and probably makes sense to do. New contract brings a guy with 5 years on the job, with Quinn, to about $115k base. City will ALWAYS choose OT over new hires. With the political climate, expect big time minority numbers in classes over the next few years.

    "nearly walk-on shot" just kind of pisses me off too. Class graduating in June has lost 30 BPD recruits. Now, I tell everyone with the means to establish residency and take the test. But i think anyone with "walk-on" mentality is set up for disappointment.

    I think he meant BPD was one of the easiest depts to get on to, not easiest academy. Not that I agree with easiest to get onto either, but that seems to be what the OP meant. And please save some of the 800+ openings until after the 2019 test lol

    I realize thats what he meant (getting a card, taking part in the hiring process etc.) You still have to pass the academy to be "on." Not sure where they got 800 from either thats definitely not the number. I think the recent issue of the Pax said like 350.

    One of the toughest academies to get through, one of the easiest to get in. That's what I meant. Mostly due to the size of the department. Much easier than being from a <15k populated town that only hires once every 4 years.

    Easiest to get in? Because of the size of the department? What an insult to the thousands of good men and women over the years that passed an extensive background check and worked hard at preparing themselves physically, mentally and academically to "get in".....

    Read the post again. I never said anything about how hard they prepared. Like I said previously "...One of the toughest academies to get through"
    Wow, people get offended at everything these days. Maybe masscops can set up a safe space.
