Congratulations! It sounds like you're well on your way.Well..
Flew to LA on Wednesday and had my Psych Interview on Friday. Went in around 1030 and didnt get out until 12:30pm. Very long and greuling lol. When it was done i thought i failed for sure.
I met up with LA Copper and we got lunch at the historic academy at Elysian Park. While eating I got the golden email that I PASSED my Psych Interview. LA Copper can tell ya how relieved I was lol. After eating, I was able to see just about everything and get a TON of information from him as well. He believes strongly in this department and I see why. LAPD is truly the best of the best. We didn't get a ton of time together because 1) my interview was 2 hours long and 2) the Personnel Building called me and told me I needed to come back to get finger printed again.
I had a ride along on Friday night with Newton Division. It was a blast. They had 4 officers fresh out of the academy so I was able to pick their brains and get as much info as I could.
Overall the entire process was seamless. I was lucky and had zero hiccups or bumps along the road. Its been 4 months and I finished the entire process. Now Im just waiting on an Academy date (Im thinking/hoping it will be September).
Again - If anyone has any questions, post them in here. If its something more personal that you need input on, PM LA Copper and/or myself. He is a great resource! And I can give you perspective from a brand new candidate.
I started this account with low expectations, now "SD 2 CA" may be a reality. I cant wait!!!!!
