1- 3

2- 5

3- 7

4- 9

5- 11

persons named in the certification willing to accept; provided that when more than one promotional appointment is being made, the first such promotional appointment shall be made from among the first three persons whose names are certified and who are willing to accept, the second such promotional appointment shall be made from among the first five persons whose names are certified and who are willing to accept, the third such promotional appointment shall be made from among the first seven persons whose names are certified and who are willing to accept, and so forth.

How are tied scores handled? If there is (1) person at #1 and (5) tied at #2, and the department hires 2, do they call ALL those tied for the # 2 spot?

If a department is hiring 10 officers, the top 21 people get a card. (2n+1) Tie Scores are not broken, however for example say the first 25 people on the list all scored 100. All 25 would get a card in the mail, but people with a 99 will be left in the cold. Hope that helps.

This is what I was told, if a dept was hiring only one...three would get a card..take the hiring number, double it then add one. So I would say that a dept hiring ten would send out 21 cards. I do not know how they do ties, refer to up above, I gather more people would get cards. Hope this helps. I find out all info right on the website, pretty informative.

My understanding is that let's say you have 10 people tied, then all those 10 people are like one person so all ten would be interviewed for the one slot. So your department was hiring 10 officers, then the minimum would 10X2+1=21. But lets say that 30 people are tied on that 21, then 51 people would get cards. I know deparments call for a larger list then what they need, in case some people do not want the job anymore or background,medical,psych failures.
