Mike in LA is correct. Just be ready for a long process. I applied at the beginning of this year so unless things drastically change and the hiring freezes again I don't expect to make it into an academy until at least sometime next year (I hope anyways). I am still waiting on my BG to clear and all I'll have left is the medical portion and Psych exam/interview. Everything else is completed that's listed on the CDCR website. Then whatever may come next that I may be unaware of that isn't listed on the website.

Trust me I feel very fortunate to apply at what seems like good timing but anything can change. I'm shocked the CDCR website is still accepting CO applications. The reason for that is anyone's guess. I hear so many different reasons from so many people who work in CDCR including my own father who's a CO but no one seems to know for sure. What year did you apply?

Well I wish you the best of luck and hope your stuff clears ASAP. According to the CDCR website they updated the new Academy start/graduation dates and there is a bunch coming up. Check it out if you haven't already. It's a bit of an inspiration and gives us all in the process an idea of possibly when we might go in.

I applied back in march 4 and I already met my background investigator back in June 26 he said he will contact me if anything comes up but till today haven't heard anything . Is that something good or bad?

I did my interview with my BI around the same time as you and just the other day I emailed my BI to check in to see how everything is going and he told me so far so good, he's just waiting for some documents from the DOD since I served in the Military but other than that waiting this long w/o contact is normal. No news is usually good news in most of these steps. When I started the BG process he told me the same thing that yours told you so its nothing to worry about. Remember the website said the BG check can take up to 90 days but realistically it can take a lot longer. Some people I know who are ahead of me in the same process said their BG took over 5 months. Once over 90 days passes go ahead and contact your BI just to see how the process is going. Good luck to you!

there's a 96 % drop out rate that's why they are still accepting apps.

I met with my BI almost 2 months ago and none of my references have received letters. For those of you who have passed backgrounds did all of your references get contacted? Also, was your BI in contact with you? Ive been trying to make contact and have not received a response.

I'm the March hiring wave (which when I applied) and barely got contacted to start my background investigation. Just be patience because this is will be a very long process. And statistically speaking, only about 3-5 percent gets hiring from each hiring wave.

Applied 3/19
Fit Test 4/30
Written 6/10
Met with Investigator 7/19
Cleared Investigation 10/11

I'm very responsive & all my references were prompt with returning their letters. Things are moving slow but at a consistent pace. Friends who are CO's told me to expect to be in academy in March of 2014 the earliest. Their is a huge push to get new CO's due to retirements and promotions.

I saw that, they have one in Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, AND Mar but they think because they are slow to push us through I probably will go (if I clear the rest) March timeframe. My BI was pretty frank with me and he said not to expect to be assigned to an academy earlier than a year from when I applied.

mine was 80....so my guess is that they are NOT going by score like they told me when I called....and they can't say that they are going by completed PHS because mine was NOT missing any paperwork and I have a very clean record. squeaky clean to be honest.
