    Nothing like seeing your name 24 pages deep to pump you up!

    You think they will pull from this list again? Any idea when the next test will be and or if it will be attached to the civil service one again?

    Last I heard when I called the recruiter a couple months ago was another state police exam early next year maybe February or March. They intended on doing an academy in October but that has been pushed so who knows if they’ll hire off this list. If they don’t, that’ll do it for me.

    I believe the next MSP test will be 2021. They test every four years.

    The next test is scheduled for March 2021.

    Yup and a class before that seems unlikely, that may put me out unfortunately

    If your name is only 24 pages deep then you should have already heard back from the State Police for the 85th. I'm 43 pages down and I got the card back in February of 2019.

    And in the budget for the state they want to graduate a class in FY 2021. The MSP should be on the 2021 CS exam since they do it every 4 years generally, but I don't think they'll pull off the names from the 2021 exam. By the time those results come out for that exam it'll almost be July/August of 2021. The last thing the MSP needs right now is to wait to get another class through, they're still hurting for bodies even after just graduating 230-240.

    I took the final military makeup exam just a few months ago and was added to the list with the most recent update

    Oh I see, well I wouldn't count yourself out by any means. Like someone said above a lot of names that are on that list are already employed by MSP or another department. Personally, I could see them pulling off the 2017 list one more time because the 2021 CS exam results take months to come out. I can't see how the MSP can wait that long to get another class going.

    Any actual rumors about this being true? I can see them pulling from the 17’ list again but that may just be wishful thinking. By the time those new results come in it’ll be September 2021...

    Rumors about what being true? Another class off the 2017 exam? All I know for sure is they're definitely going to be on the 2021 CS exam. I know the times I've taken the exam 2015 and 2017 both times the exam results took a good 5-6 months to come out. So if they have the exam in March of 2021 you can safely assume results will be out around August/September.

    From a personal opinion standpoint, I can't see any way the MSP can wait that long. Because once the results are out you're then looking at another 6-8 months before you can even start an academy off that 2021 exam results. It's a long process as some of us in here know. So March 2021 exam, August/September results come out, then you're looking at possibly a March/April 2022 academy? That's hard to imagine them waiting that long.

    If you're on the 2017 list and still eligible then I'd stay in good shape because I'd put good money on them pulling from it again.

    And! for what it's worth I have heard rumblings that Colonel Mason is really wanting to get another academy going as soon as possible. So that bodes well for people on the 2017 list. Ultimately what's really going to show their cards is what is in the Mass State Budget for 2021 whenever it gets released. It should have already been released but with Covid it's got a lot of things on hold of course. If you see an item in the budget for a SPA class for 2021 then I think it's safe to assume it's based off the 2017 CS exam. I mean how can they plan a class in 2021 when the exam for 2021 hasn't even been held yet.

    Not to get anyones hopes up who's on the 2017 CS exam too much, but a buddy of mine who's got his ear to the ground with the higher ups heard cards are going out in the new year for the 86th (Jan/Feb). Believe me, don't believe me, but if you're on that 2017 exam and still hoping for a shot, you might get it.. be ready!

    Would be cool if they updated the list huh? Even when they updated the list last time it wasn’t even accurate
  22. DPH1992

    DPH1992 MassCops Member

    It's accurate, they just don't remove the names of people already employed. The list doesn't change, rankings don't change, nothing changes on a civil service list. That list has been exhausted pretty heavily over the past 3 years though. I'm on in a city department now and I'm still on the list and that's the case for a lot of names on there. Plenty of MSP from the 85th on that March 2020 list too.
