They just started calling people in the 80's so 75's should be very soon fingers crossed

Depending on the needs of each prison are new officers limited to a certain amount of overtime hours or are they more so expected to accept all mandates and stride to work OT?

Brooklyn NY! Lot of dogs up that way.

My question:

Is it best to lie to your girl so as to prevent a fight? I'm serious now.

Thank you for your response ahead of time.

Call the number to the Investigations Unit and not the direct number to your BI. The receptionist or another Investigator will answer. Tell them who you are and ask to speak to your BI. This way you'll get transferred to them or they will tell you your BI isn't available and to call back later.

Being stuck going into an RDO is a bummer. OT is good it'll come down to whether you want to swap or do OT.

Hey JJSLUKE, thanks for your response to me direct a couple days back! In regards to your inquiry, basically an investigator calls you and verifies that you are the candidate and then says something along the lines that we are extending you an opportunity to attend our Academy and do you accept? And I said I absolutely accept sir and thank you very much! Ok great! We will forward you the necessary paperwork, please allow 2-3 days for you to receive in the mail. He verified my mailing address. He advised me when receive to read over all information thoroughly and if accept the terms, please sign 3 pages in particular of the packet sent and return them via fax number, which they provide for you. He asked me if I had any questions and I said no. The investigator said congratulations and good luck! I said thank you very much! Specifically on your packet they will provide the exact deadline (in my case about 10 days from date received) to get the crucial 3 pages signed and back to them via fax or express overnight mail and if you do not meet the deadline it is as good as a declination. The rest of the packet is important information you need to have with you when you get to the Academy for processing that first night. Daveh99 basically summed it up on his response to you "BITTERSWEET"! Hope this helps! In the meantime, get your gear ready, save as much money as you can, be patient and in time your call will come! Good luck!

Congrats to all who got the call! Tomorrow afternoon will be show time for the first Sept class. Good luck to you all! When you get a chance please let us know on the boards how it is going. There is a great video of a 2007 NYS Corrections Officer Class at Willard that went in on You Tube that will give you a bird's eye view of what to expect at the Academy from the first evening of processing thru graduation. The only difference is we will be in Albany and have grey PT shirts. Just Google Willard 2007 NYS Correctional Academy and it should pop up. Once again good luck and keep us all posted how things are going. Remember, no matter how tough things get, quitting is not an option! See you in 2 weeks!

NYSCO Hopeful in South Glens Falls, New York said: Hi everyone,

Congrats to all who got the call recently and best of luck to you!

I have been monitoring this forum for the last year. I must say this forum is very addicting, and in a good way, new viewers be ware & careful, you have been warned. In time you will know what I mean! I want to thank participants for all the great information posted here. In particular BSO, but also many others.

I just got "The Call" today, well now yesterday Sept 3rd, around 3pm for the Sept 23rd class. The call happened on mine and my wife's 14th wedding anniversary to the day, which made it extra exciting and special!

Test 25-431, scored an 80, on middle of page 6 and completed all testing Dec 18th 2012, 1 on 1 was Jan 2nd 2013. I waited 8 months after my 1 on 1 almost to the day for the call! I hope this helps everyone gauge where they stand. I am pretty pumped about this opportunity to say the least!

I will be wrapping up a 25 year career in private industry and I seriously desired a change and this will be a new journey and a life changer for me, my wife and two children . Will I do the 25 years with NYS, God only knows, but Tier 6 benefits is better than private industry. I am looking forward to it and up to the task.

For all of you waiting, be patient, your time will come. Good luck & be careful!

I too got "the call" that same day for 9/23 class. And i have to agree it will be a life changer as i also am married with two sons. and i too have been out there in the world working for 30 yrs. Good Luck

Mooserny, thanks for your response. Congrats on the call! It is comforting knowing there are others in a similar situation as mine. See you in two weeks at the front door. Good luck to you as well!

I literally just finished reading the book "New Jack" and must say it was a good read. That in combination with all the great information shared here are good. I will admit I use to worry why I was not called but hearing all the reassuring words or confidence "no news is good news" and "you will get the call" makes it easier. GL to all those whom received the call especially to those whom are reporting tomorrow. I hope there are enough classes approved to accommodate a lot of us. :-).

One last piece of advice, when you go and check in they're going to ask you for your drivers license. Awww you know what I'm not going to give it away I got to keep some surprises in hand. Have fun tomorrow!

Good luck guys. Just remember you are getting paid to work out and go to school. Keep a good attitude, don't expect everything to be fair, and do everything you are told to do to the best of your ability. Help each other out, and don't quit.

My girlfriend's brother is up at Fishkill. He's coming from The Bronx and he says it usually takes just under an hour to get to work unless there's some issue on the road.... You should be fine. You might even end up leaving the city behind.

Hello everyone. I wnted to know if its true that after completing the medical at cohoes, do you later receive a letter in the mail stating you pass? I figured that once a candidate seen the doctor that same day and was cleared to participate in the physical agility test literally right after,, that meant you passed the medical. Am I wrong? It wouldnt make sense to have someone with a medical "issue" to partake in a physical, right?

My understanding is that the state is collecting DNA and also screening you for communicable diseases or chronic diseases that would prevent you from performing your job. Obvious conditions such as chronically high blood pressure would show up right away, but something like failing kidneys would require the bloodwork you have to do.
