Its not a standard letter eye chart. You take off glasses or contacts when you get there and after 20 minutes or so you look at a picture in a machine then say which one has # in it. Then put on glasses or contact and do again with corrected vision. You can have lasik, but dont buy now. The union has great vision plan which can get your eyes fixed for low price.

Yeah, you shoot those three. It's incredibly easy even if you've never fired a gun before. Just follow safety procedures..... You get like 7 tries with the glock. I've never personally encountered anyone who failed firearms. Although I guess I wouldn't because I'm on the job.  They will DQ you if you aren't safe though.

I don't think so. The going rumor is they are closing 7-10 prisons and possibly furloughing based on seniority. I heard the bottom 3000 officers on the list for the state are all getting laid off. You might be able to go to the academy for 8 weeks, but you will not be on the job.

I scored 75 as well. I feel I would’ve scored higher if it was an actual test , I did not qualify for all those other work experiences or the volunteering just basic work history , but yes at least we passed.    No They don’t want short   It just has to be pulled back and up in the academy after the academy , on the job   the hair can’t be below the collar line but I think it can be styled     So if you have long hair yours has to be up...I’m just trying to figure out what to with mine to make it easier to deal with.
