To answer some questions, I am on list 24825. I have been through the physical, agility, met my investigator, taken the written psych test, and this Saturday have my one on one with the Psychologist. If that's what you all mean by the "call." I scored a 70, unfortunately. Based on people's experience, am I in good shape, can I expect to go to the academy this year? Of course assuming I pass all the steps.....I have heard that DOCS in in critical need of CO'S....?

thanks a lot guys..
mini me that does sound easy I should have no problem passing something like that..

thing is I was on the police officer road and then the year that I had turned 21 they put the freeze on it and have been laying off cops ever since so, Im finishing up school this year with a bachelors in Sociology and Anthropology..
I scored very high on the police exam, passed the medical, and then since they put the freeze on it I kinda of got discouraged and didn't continue with the physical or psychological, but this year I'm going to apply for the police officer test again because my 4years of holding the exam is about to be up, and I signed up for the May correction officer test but they never sent me a date yet..the end of filing is May 15th is that when they'll send me a date, or should I have got a date already I put it in and paid for the application about 3weeks ago?

Blessed you could walk in everyday 9-3 i believe to take the NYPD and Corrections officer exam.. NYPD is free to take.. if your talkin about city corrections.. i say its a waste of your time if your lookin to get on asap.. i been waiting for city for 3 years. this past february i completed my investigation.. i was told if im lucky the next class is in november but chances are slim.. so i give up.. the application should of told u when the official date is..its usually a month after the dead line. but u will get a letter with a location informing you where to go to take the exam.. you could of walked in u might as well walk in for NYPD..
