When did you guys receive the letter?
When did you guys receive the letter?
To those of you guys saying that your BG is complete....
Can you post exactly what that letter says? I've only seen people on this site saying it. I haven't heard of another person getting it....
Are you sure your letter doesn't say "Once background is completed...." Is it the same letter that tells you that it might be a good idea to start gathering medical information?
Can someone please clear this up for me?
From what I understand, this is the situation to date:
The ONLY letters that have been sent out to candidates thus far are the letters informing select individuals that they have passed the INITIAL PANEL REVIEW and were SELECTED FOR FURTHER PROCESSING.
Those who have passed the INITIAL panel review have already undergone the field investigation... or they will in the future. The field investigation is when the background division contacts your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and meets/talks with the prospective candidate to ask detailed questions regarding his/her answers on the INITAL background questionnaire.
The timing of the receipt of the INITIAL PANEL REVIEW letters were somewhat confusing for some as many who received them already knew by default that they had moved on (as they already underwent the field investigation.) Some candidates mistook the INITIAL PANEL REVIEW letters as something more because of this.
The next step, according to the joinlafd.org website, is the notification of select candidates (who have finished the field investigation) that they either have a tentative job offer (pending medical/psych) or are not selected, thusly ending their job application process. No one has received a letter for either scenario yet.
I got the letter the JL503 described. I know that my BG is done because my BI told me when he would submit it. So selection or non-selection yet. Does anyone know whether or not the select letters will specify a time line, or will the academy assignment come after the medical/psych?
That's the same letter I got, my background was submitted close to over 2 weeks ago. Nobody will find out anything until at least end of October to November is what my BI told me
That's the same letter I got, just stating that you had passed the initial panel and once everything was completed your packet would be submitted for final selection. I talked to my investigator last week and he was writing my summary and finalizing everything for submission. When I first met with him he told me they were under pressure to get all of them done by mid October because the final panel wasn't going to look at packets until all were completed. Whether or not that's still true, who knows but either way it's a good sign for all of us.
Big thing to happen to LAFD hiring! Must Read!
hopefully this means they are going to interview everyone on the list, not just 900.
Calls are apparently being made with conditionals starting this morning.
Unless you have Chief, Mayor, or Commissioner in front of your name. You do not know what is happening with this process until stuff happens. And stuff is happening this morning....
I stand corrected then, I was told by a chief heavily involved with hiring the facts I presented and asked about what you said was told those things, settle down
Moving on, congrats to all who got medicals. Two months to get into the best shape of your life! My background got postponed to get higher scoring candidates through first and will hopefully be started again soon.
If anyone gets a phone call today, let us all know! Best of luck to everyone!
Anybody else have friends that got calls this week so far? Nothing for me yet.
