I took the pft of may 14th and the written and livescan on the 28th of may. Still waiting for a call or email. The lady who did my fingerprints said the next step is background checks. I'm hoping to hear something soon.

I scored an 80 out of 96 on the written which I was a little disappointed with but at least I passed. Still wish I would have scored in the 90's. When I did the PFT one of the guys there who was also doing the test said two of his friends are currently in the academy. They heard from the instructors there that they are going to try to push alot of people through fairly quickly because they are so short staffed. Also the new facility in Stockton needs CO's. Take that with a grain of salt though, this was just some guy not anyone who works with the CDCR.

for people applying this year, I know a lot of us that applied back in 2011 are finally getting through to the academy so not trying to be negative but I doubt you'll get processed in under a year unless cdcr really gets their stuff together.

I was wondering the same thing just the other day, I haven't heard anything since I took fingerprints in April. Just yesterday a close friend of mine told me she received a letter from a investigator. I'm assuming that I should hear from an investigator once he/she receives all the letters???

Really?! I called them last week and they told me they were calling by score. What was your written score?

I didn't finish the test. I was still about 10 away from completing the whole test. I ran out of time. The overall score score for me was 80 and I received an 80. I believe if I'm correct, all of the ones I answered were all correct.

Yeah I got an 80 too. They told me it might be 3-6months before getting to BI, so it's just waiting now. Have you called them?

I turned my stuff in Oct 2011, talked to my BI and then heard nothing.
Got a letter in March 2012 that I was cleared through background.

From what my analyst is saying, CDCR is ramping up but I just don't know how long it will take those of you who applied this year. Seems like they're hiring most of the people who applied back in 2010 still. I applied in May 2011.

well I emailed the OPOS customer service number and my analyst replied back to me and said she was my analyst for medical. so now I have a contact person.

This is the first time I've had a point of contact since my background investigator but even still I only talked to him twice.

I applied in Oct 2010 & scored an 85 on my written. I've passed everything except my oral physc & medical exam. I'm currently waiting to hear if I cleared my medical which I took about 3 weeks ago. I believe my next step would be the oral physc & I'm done. We'll see what location they'll offer me. (Anxious!) lol Good Luck everyone!!

Thanks, Well first time my background investigator said I needed AA degree and that was the reason I was disqualify and the second time I had driver license suspended twice in last five years... and for that the second time... so God willing this time I might get as I heard they need lots of people.... So stay motivated guys.

SVSP needs officers. We are losing officers because many took advantage of the transfer window opportunity. SVSP is a good institution to learn and promote quick. New officers, prepare for double shifts (16 hours), you will get mandated to stay a double if the watch needs to fill jobs. If you get hired as a PIE, you will more than likely be rolled over to full time during your first week of block training.

I don't know about January academy since there are still a few that started the process back in 2010/2011, but I sure hope they start soon. My life is on hold meanwhile, I can't move because I'm in a month to month situation now and wouldn't want to have a lease, I don't want to move my kids from schools until I know where I'm beeing sent (hopefully I don't get dq'd). So yeah my life is on hold. Lol
