I spoke to the Chief in Darien Police Department today...and he said unless something major comes up in my background or I fail the psychological or doctors exam...I'm hired. The academy would start Sept. 30!

So hope that I'm not crazy!!! For all the talk I did about CSP...it's a shame I'm going to give it up...but who knows, down the road I may pursue it again....That is unless they offer me a job within the next 2-3 weeks! 8) (I rule).

Good for you Kate, glade to hear that. =D> =D> Sounds like your well on your way to the academy. Take whatever comes first and don't get discouraged that CSP did not come calling first. You can always go to CSP if the opportunity presents itself. Getting hired, the academy, and experience on the job wherever it may be is the most important first step. Many officers have started out with municipal departments and gone to the state afterwards. I can think of a few in the current MSP academy now that left their departments after a considerable amount of time on the job.

Congrats... that's sweet... Getting on the job that you have always wanted...

... and yes, for this occasion, you may say you "Rule."

Just remember those that helped pick out the wardrobe attire that locked in your success in the interview stage.

Good luck with the rest of the process. My best advise is to keep a low profile until you have an offical job offer in hand. Statements such as above could come back to haunt you. Just my $.02

Agreed...it could all come and bite me in the ass. I could be very happy in whatever department I get into and never want to think about anything else.

I just love the fact that the cheif was like "you'll get a job"...

Thank you all who have posted. I appreciate all the help (happy Cowboy :wink: ) and all the support, but I'm not there yet..so keep your finger crossed that I'm not crazy!

Kate

Congratulations and I wish you the best in the academy! Don't forget to keep us posted from time to time and let us know how you are doing while you are attending the academy.

I know I speak for a majority of the members here when I say if you need anything just let us know. We got your back.

Best wishes, :t:

Thanks again everyone...like I said, I don't have it yet...but I'm closer then I've ever been...and having a chief (and another captain) tell me they really want me, makes me feel good.

You all know how helpful you've been...even if I don't get this one, I just want everyone to know you've been great. You really have helped me through a lot of decisions and I thoroughly appreciate it!


Thank you...

Hey Kate that's great!! Good luck.

Oh, tip: don't walk in looking like this to the psych: :crazy: or :wl: or :A: The last one is the worst cause it would be your multiple personalities arguing with each other

The Capt. in charge of training came over yesterday for a face-to-face...he told my husband and I that I am number 1 on their list....I'm excited...

He did say I am going to have a chest x-ray and a stress test. Anyone know the point of the chest x-ray? Or what a stress test is like?

Thanks.

Chest X-Ray?... Maybe to see if you were or are a smoker with lung problems?

Stress test is probably just a 15 to 20 min run on a tread mill hooked up to an EKG
