Got the email today for the essay/spelling test for WRPS. Best part is that its my number one choice of services. Can't wait. I know its only phase 2 of like 10 but its a good feeling to at least get the ball rolling.

(Had to let it out)

Didn't realize that last part could be interpreted that way until I read it a few times. I'll be sure not to take...IT out.

I applied to WRPS, had lived there for a few years, nice city. Only outfit to not offer me an interview. I was proceeding with 4 outfits, out of 5 i applied to. I got the standard "we will keep you on file". Their loss, i got offers and was hired; i can only assume with 70%+ of their populace a student or between average age of hire for an outfit that this area is very competitive. I know a couple guys on the job up there and they seem to like it ok.

Can you elaborate on this? I am applying to WRPS too in the future, I am not sure what you mean by outfit, like police service? So if you are a student and what is the average age of hire(?), then you got no chance of getting hired?

Outfit = police service = police force.....

Its not that you cannot get hired, i believe it to be very competitive. Like i said, i applied to 5 services, basically at the same time. They sent me the standard draft letter, while everyone wanted an interview and to continue to the further stages.

Tri-cities, i feel is competitive because of its location, the cities themselves, and the demographic of its people. When i lived there i noted it to be quite multicultural. As stated there are multiple Universities, and colleges. The competition you are against will most certainly have a diploma or degree.

Buddy of mine just got on there as an experienced officer, which took him some time to accomplish. He has about 10-15 years police experience. You wont know if you are competitive until you try. And at the end of the day what do you have to lose? Some printed application forms and some pen ink? Perhaps some gas and some of your time to drop it off?

Apply. Good luck.

Don't forget its not just education. I just finished up my DCI/LFI about a week ago, and I have nothing more than high school and a few online certificate courses and workshops for my work. I'm 28, and have a fair bit of life experience. I'd second the idea that a tri-city area may be more competitive, and the cultural aspect for sure. I do a lot of business in Cambridge, and speak fluently in a language Cambridge is filled with, so I'd like to think it was enough to get me past the submitting of an application phase.

At the end of the day, its what you have to offer, and like it's been mentioned here time and time again, apply and find out, throw it at the wall and see what sticks. One month they may have 100 people who seem better on paper, but 6 months later they can be worse on paper, just keep applying, and trying.

True, how did you do at the LFI? I have my stage 1 for OACP coming up, I was wondering do they care your test results or is it just a pass/fail factor?
