    Nothing yet on my end. I'm not sure my boss has gotten a call or anything either.

    Has anyone else heard anything? My current boss hasn't gotten a call or anything, nor my neighbors, etc.

    I know people who have done everything other than the PAT.

    Wow- really? If for some reason I was disqualified, do they let you know? I was missing one item the day we met the investigators and I got it to him the following Monday.

    Not sure If they would let you know or not. I know the cadets were suppose to start in August but tomorrow is September . . . so I would assume that is delaying this whole process.

    This list is moving slow... I hope they make at least two academies out of this list or I'm out of the running for sure.

    The rumor is that academy will be pushed to maybe January... Because of delay getting cadets started..

    I think its December still. I know a couple people that have been scheduled for written psych tests. After that theres not much left.

    Academy instructor told me it is still scheduled to start in December but also told me that if it did change to January they would probably be the last ones to know if that was the case.

    They definitely would be the last to know. The norm has been that they push the class to a Jan start date but I believe one of the last two classes started in Dec.

    I have not seen one, but my friend that scored 96 had his psych (written eval) yesterday. I, 95, am waiting on home visit... my friends psych was exactly one week from his home visit...

    Talked to a friend on BPD just a short time ago. He said they sent two additional detectives to Recruit Investigations today so they could speed the process up. Good luck to anyone going through process......

    Ok this IS true they did in fact send two over to recruit investigations. However whether or not that actually speeds things up.........

    Anyone know if the new fiscal budget for Boston 2016-2107 called for another police class in 2017? I'm getting nervous sitting in the lower 90's that I scored too low for this test. I had hoped they would have a few classes from this list but not looking too good at this point.

    Talked to one of Boston's Finest yesterday . He said their looking at big retirement numbers in the next couple years.
    Looks like all the boomers are cashing in.
    It's definitely a waiting game.

    Good luck to all that applied.

    I would encourage all BPD hopefuls to take a page out of your playbook.
    Live and work in the city ( hopefully in some kind of LE capacity ) and stand by

    To all the hopefuls,

    I was in your same shoes a few years ago. Checking this forum a few times a day to see if there were any new milestones in the process- Home visits? Psych? Anyone get scheduled for the PAT? etc. etc. etc. After the initial background, it is a tough waiting game. Long story short, the dream came true and I was at 85 Williams Ave. on a frigid early December morning to start day one of the rest of my life. A few thoughts:

    -Its been said before in this forum and it is obviously true: the huge (150+) classes from the 80's are on their way out. I don't see classes that large being put on to compensate (Boston, and any city really, prefers to pay boatloads of OT instead of hiring) but I do see at least one class per year, with numbers in the 60's, 70's, possibly 80's, for many years to come.

    -Be patient. The number of candidates that are immediately eliminated via a 2 minute BOP and Driver's History check is staggering. For any of you hopefuls with access to CJIS in your current job, think about how many people you've run with disaster driving records that precludes them from the job, without even getting into the BOPs.

    -This thread is 50 pages long, but if you take the time to go back, theres some great advice. There was one particular post on PAT advice that was applicable and helpful.

    As far as I know, the candidates still in the game are being scheduled for psychs and medicals. Final step is being scheduled for PAT. Hearing December academy start but thats really no more than rumor and a good guess based on past December classes and the stage this current process is at.

    Good luck, get your diet right, stay out of the bars.
