After doing all the paperwork for traffic, including the psychological exam and oral, how long after that you started training? It's been over 5months now since have done all of that and I'm still waiting.
I took me 3 years for NYC CORRECTIONS and 3 1/2 years for NYPD
Written and a oral test to take when the call
I took my written exam for Police Officer in January and received an email to start the process in October. From what I hear, once the process starts they speed you in to all the other appointments like the medical, psych, JST etc.. The fastest i've heard was 3 months after receiving the email to start the process
It takes abount a monyh

It took me two years before I was able to start my job as a School Safety Officer for the NYPD. The steps were first and foremost, apply online to take the Civil Service test, and once I past I had to wait until they started calling from my list. Once I was called I had to get fingerprinted, drug tested, interviewed, and also I had to be psychologically evaluated twice written and oral. I also had to be investigated by a Police Officer going back 10 years i believe.
About 3 to 6 months once called off the test list
