hey..i had the pbq/lfi written component last month, and have the dci coming up next week.

for the dci, is it similar to a regular lfi for other agencies? from what the hps website says, depending on how i score on the dci, ill be asked to come to the eci.

The DCI is based on the Developmental Competencies on there website.
You will need to draw upon life experiences to explain those competencies. Much like an ECI.
They may then go into an LFI or a review of your PBQ if you pass your DCI.
They you will do the MMPI and 16PF.

That is all in one day takes about 5-6hrs.
