--- Ok well not much of an update, but FI went to meet with the background investigator and everything went well. He answered a 100+ questionnaire about his past/experiences and the investigator said it looked really clean and good. He got sent home with a extensive packet to fill out that's due back in a litte more than a week which will get the ball rolling on a thorough background check where they talk to past neighbors, relatives, employers, etc. -- basically everybody and their momma, lol. Then he'll take a polygraph and psychological evaluation exam.
So as I had expected he's on the right track and the possibility of him getting accepted into the academy looks good. He didn't wanna ask the investigator about our possible "wedding conflict" because it would seem too presumptuous in assuming that he'll get through the recruitment process. So me being crafty, sent a random email to their recruitment officer asking how long the process would take from the time he takes the written test and physical exam to the time he gets accepted into the academy. He sent me back a thorough response, but bottom line was 2 to 4 months, then about a month before he would enter the academy. *sigh* yep that means he could possibly be in the midst of the academy right around our wedding date.
Every department is different, like you said, because my hubby's academy was 8-9 months (LAPD). Good luck with everything and keep us posted.
By the way, we are almost neighbors now. Now that I got married, I moved to my hubby's house in Downey and Cerritos isn't too far away!
Hi neighbor!!! Downey and Cerritos are close ~ we should set up a local BDW brides meet, it would be so much fun.
I actually work as a overnight News Reporter in the press room at the LAPD Headquarters in downtown LA ~ yep the ghetto ass Parker Center, lol. How does your DH like the LAPD, and which station does he work at? I write about all the overnight crime in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties, so I know how dangerous LAPD patrolled areas can be ~ do you ever worry about him being on the job?? I have a feeling I'm going to be a worrywart if FI enters law enforcement...
