Hey Nick, any news?
Nope, still no news on my end. How about you? Hoping your LFI results were positive!
They were! I got the e-mail yesterday, 4 days after the interview. I was a little worried because most people get the results within a day or two, but everything worked out. Now, on to psych/sigma.

One of the first things the Sargeant that interviewed me said was that I should be happy to have gotten an interview because out of all the applications they receive only about half of them get to the PBQ and only half of those make it to the interview.

I need help with something that came up on the Policeprep SIGMA sample test. I could not figure out an easy way of answering the "Which of the statements is the most likely description of the suspect?" type question. Is there something I'm missing? Can someone explain it to me?

Typically with these questions you are going to want to look at commonalities between the statements. For example, if the same descriptive fact is mentioned in 3/4 statements, then that 3 facts in common are likely correct. You want to apply that methodology to the entire series of statements.

I hope that made sense!

So getting the file number means that your application has been only deemed complete nothing else right?

Pretty much, I think. I’m not a recruiter so don’t quote me on that.

Hello everyone,

This is my first post on the thread! Here is some information on my process:

Applied : August 12, 2019
File number received : August 21, 2019
PBQ: September 12, 2019
LFI: September 25, 2019
LFI results: September 26, 2019
Background investigation stage: October 2, 2019
Psych/sigma test : October 22, 2019

I was wondering if anyone else has been waiting for news since October/November? I have not had any news since my psych test but I’m hoping no news is good news for now..

Thanks!

Hey!
First time posting as well.

My timeline is roughly the same as yours, and I’ve been waiting since then as well!
No news is good news (at least that’s just what I’ve been saying to reassure myself)

I know every application has a different timeline, but how long after the LFI did the background stage start for you guys? I got a notification that I passed the LFI a few days after the interview, and got scheduled for the psych/SIGMA that day. The tests were done last Friday, but my background has not started yet, and I’ve not done the medicals or home interview yet. So I’m just wondering how long did it take for other applicants to have their file assigned to an investigator, which should indicate that I passed the psych test.

Thanks for replying Sbux. I actually received the e-mail requesting fingerprints and medicals this afternoon, so I guess that means I passed the psych!
