    no however i live near their. I know a guy that use to work there. he enjoyed it. very good department from what he says. Traditional and old school from what he says. He left because of having to drive through the tunnels and traffic to work for a dept closer to him.

    You you guys thought it was easy, then you didn't do well enough to meet their cut off. You need to be in the middle 90's for most career departments.

    This City and Department has nothing to do with the Chesapeake Bay, bridge or tunnel, period!

    Get yourself a map of Virginia.

    1. Not every one has taken it since there will be several days to take it if you listened while in the auditorium.

    2. Not every one will pass the CPAT either the first time or second time 12 weeks later.

    This will not be a fast process.

    i dont understand why they give you an extra 12 weeks. it doesnt seem fair to the ones who passed it right off the bat

    Chesapeke just got in trouble for not having enough women and minorities on their department and was on a hiring freeze for a long time because of a law suit. I am sure they want to give everyone a fair chance and if they fail then they can say they gave them every chance in the would. Just a FYI about 10 months ago they was only hiring women. Saw a new article on it.
