I talked to the VT State Police recruiting Lt. and Sgt. today and both told me I will be getting hired for summer academy class which begins July 11. Its not 100% official yet, but both said that I am high on the list and they are just waiting for the OK from the Colonel to hire which will be by next week at the latest. Almost there... almost hard to beleive. Best news of my life! I'll post here once I get the official letter. :D

Just got back from orientation. Met all my fellow recruits. Seems like we have a strong group and have already began the team effort in helping each other out. Two of the guys are already cops and we are making sure we all are on the same page and bring exactly the same stuff. We all have a list of our fellow recruits names, addresses, phone #'s, and email addresses which I think is a great idea since there is only 15 of us. The nerves were hitting me a little today but after meeting them I feel much better. Feeding off each other for support. 9 more days til the fun begins!

Are the two guys that are already cops from Connecticut? If so I did the Day 1 testing with them, one had a darker complextion and was tall, other wasn't as tall. The shorter of the two was from Newington I believe. The former gave me a hat to keep me warm in the freezing cold run which I appreciated. If these are the same guys I'm thinking of, wuld if it be possible for me you tive PM me their e-mail addresses?

I wish the letter they sent me said more than "you didn't meet our minimum qualifications" after the Sgt told me I had passed the interview but didn't score high. I just left a message with the LT. to see if I can get anymore detail on that. I just really want to know why, I gave everything my all, maybe they just didn't like the fact that I Was only 19, turning 20 less than 2 months before the academy class.

Hiring process moves rather quickly. Its much more efficient than in MA. Day one is the written, PT, and psych. Then on to the oral board, then the poly, then BI, then medical.

Oral is high stress... the academy i hear is very tough, which i will be finding out on Monday. If you have any specific questions, shoot me a PM. I might not have computer acccess beyond Thursday but we'll see

Not many police agencies will hire someone who is 19 or 20, even 21. At that age, theres just not enough life experience. There is one guy in my class from CT.

Just take some college courses or join the military... then re-apply.
