    Curious if anyone has heard anything about academy start date?
    I had my home visit about month and my packet was presented to the board that week. I haven't heard anything since. My investigator told me once they hand over the packet their job is done. Still yet to do the psych and physical, losing hope.

    Several people have already gone through the medical part of the process and are moving on to the physical PAT. I would assume that the academy will start in January.

    Has anyone received their letter/call for the PAT test yet? I know the walkthrough is this week they said.

    From what I heard, all letters have been mailed to 100 & 99 score candidates. After they complete the psych and physical the 98's will be notified next to fill remaining slots. Scored a 98. There is still a chance!

    Ok cause I know there's gonna be a few PAT's this month. From what I checked in the civil service schedule and some even early. I know the 98 field is deep. That's where I am

    I have an unpatched patrol jacket that is required for any recruit looking to save a few dollars. Nothing's wrong with it, just never got it patched because I have 2 other patrol jackets that my dept. uses. Make a decent offer and it's yours. Figure I'd give you a shot at it first before I post it in the gear thread.

    You'll be receiving a gear/item list, double check the style number, but this is the one they've used in the past.

    Specs:
    Blauer Style #9915Z
    Size: Large
    MSRP: $334.99

    When did he get his letter in the mail?

    For those walking outside and checking their mailboxes every day; it's an e-mail. Check the e-mail address you gave when you signed up for the CS test, don't forget to check your spam folder either.

    Its not an email. BPD HR sends a letter with the practice date and actual date.

    Thank you USAF3424 for the info, it is greatly appreciated. Can't remember the last time I was excited to check my mail. I remain hopeful!

    I guess a bunch of 98s passed the PAT today and were told they were in a "tied" group. Should find out in the next 2 weeks whos in.

    How will they decide who's in or not?

    That is unfortunate for me. I scored a 98 and never received a call or mail to attempt the PAT. Do you know how the process works going forward. My investigator has been pretty vague in details about it and my status. I wish they would tell me I'm not being considered any longer so I can move along with my life.

    Can we still contact our investigators? I thought they were done with us after the background check.

    The sad part is they wont even notify you that you didn't make it until after the academy starts. I'm not sure how they decide the ties. I think you can guess how its probably done.

    Anyone else on here score a 98 and have not done their PAT? Talked to multiple people internally and everyone is telling me something different. Was told there are 65 candidates in 98 score bracket. Curious to see who tested and how their background varies from mine. Thought I would have an advantage as I'm prior service army national guard "not a veteran though" Boston resident 5+ years, and possess a Boston LTC ID.

    that's probably why the scoring system was changed on this test. Besides Vets there are far less people tied in the score brackets.

    Dude sorry but none of that matters, they could care less. This the disadvantage of not having a oral board interview (unless you screwed up) and not reviewing resumes to compare candidates. If you are tied in group that large than my assumption would be that they will look at (if they haven't plucked said candidates) language, minority and female candidates in that pile...then of course those who have some juice and not particularly in that order.

    What the flying fuck is going on with LE hiring in Mass?! No interviews for 2 of the most sought after departments in the state??

    I'm baffled. This makes absolutely ZERO sense to me. If anyone can explain a logical reason for this, I'm all ears.

    Yes there is an initial interview with a background investigator who is ultimately in charge of the background but that that is basic to any departments process and by no means actually replaces the fundamental piece of an actual oral board interview. Apples and oranges....
