Police study guide helps work your mind

Or just play the computer game Riven (Myst II) and if you can beat that without any guide, you’ll have no issues 😎

Happy Friday, everyone!

Just curious, anybody with similar timeline to mine? Reason I ask is, I was told to renew my psych evaluation a few months back because it expires September 2019, and I was told to keep an eye out for a follow up email of some sort for the scheduling of the psych eval renewal. That email never came; I emailed recruitment to followup and I was told that I will receive a formal invite to OITP once a date has been set, with no statements about my psych eval at all. Obviously now, my psych eval is already expired, as I understand it only stays valid for one year.

Just wanted to see if anybody else is on the same boat. Goodluck to all applicants!!!
