    For those that took the first CPAT practice sessions, tomorrow would make exactly 5 months before they expire. Considering the passing of 2A and the fact that they claim that there will be two classes in 2013, one would think they would put a class in before the CPAT's expire, but who knows, just speculating here.

    Has anybody been in contact with CSC by any chance?

    I have been in touch with CSC. I was given my current rank and told that "a March academy is a possibility" and I would be "in consideration for that academy" (should it happen). Nothing confirmed or anything, but that's what they were able to offer as far as updated info. Another Commission meeting on the 21st, so hopefully more info coming down the pipe? Fingers crossed, fellas.

    I've heard March as well. Anyone know when they would do the interviews if that's the case?

    Good question. I would have to assume by February? Seems like they would want to finalize that pretty soon. I could of course be way off though.

    i believe it is 16 weeks, without EMT; and i think it's another 2-3 weeks for EMT, full time as well.

    Turn your pm's on. I'm an out-of-stater also and have a question for you.

    PM's are still a no go. You can fix that in your "general settings." Or maybe try and pm me. Thanks

    This part was intriguing to me:

    It looks like the meetings have changed to entry level poilce hiring talks, If the rumors are correct about a first part of March academy then we have about 7-8 weeks not counting 2 weeks notice to current employers. I hope to meet some new friends in March.

    Two different sources within DFD informed me that, end of Feb or first part of March with all the "stuff" crammed into the last few weeks prior.

    Interesting, I would think they would need to do the medical and stuff in advance with a little time to get results back? Who knows, either way, hopefully this info pans out.

    Anyone know of a good neighborhood near-ish to the academy? Or better yet a good apartment complex?

    I would check North field or Stapleton, if you want to get crazy its close to park hill but its really expensive that way.

    Ghetto commerce city area? that would be the closest(and cheapest) , but i wouldn't recommend.I agree with ColoradoDave, and i'd also check out henderson, Thornton, maybbbeeee Brighton (longer distance, but u shouldn't have any traffics and it could be cheaper as well). Aurora is not too far either

    Talked with human resources today, they confirmed a rumor that we might have March academy. They should get confirmation on that within 1-1.5 weeks. Good luck to everybody!
