    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.

    Thats the same feeling I got because my investigator told me he would for sure be done in 4 weeks

    Everyone would love to go along with this plan.... Hire a lot of FFs and hire em quick! Get staffing back to normal. Everyone is happy......
    The problem is the money necessary to do that. unfortunately this proposal doesn't address finances at all....

    The proposal doesn't address finances, but they've already implemented a plan that will hire 140 firefighters within the next 8 months, and a solid pool of candidates to hire for the remaining spots. They're pushing two academies in January and June 2013 from those that are in backgrounds now.

    hopefully this means they are going to interview everyone on the list, not just 900.

    the final panel is still under way, letters go out inviting people to medical/psych exam, none of which have been scheduled. The process is currently behind schedule.

    Not to throw a wrench in that but people are getting called, a buddy just got his medical/psych scheduled for the 30th

    Are you on the panel? Or the planning board? I assume not. Are you just basing your knowledge or past hiring dates? How would you know that they are "behind" schedule? Pretty bold statements to just say I am completely wrong. I have one source who I trust very much that stated he got a call from personnel today to schedule his med and psych for next week. He is not one to lie, or gain any benefit in saying he got a call when he in fact didn't. I'm sure we will hear more people getting calls soon as they ramp up for this next academy.

    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....

    How you initially wrote your post (before editing it) you made accusations to discredit my information. Basically calling me a liar. I don't know who would ever appreciate a comment like that. But things happen and all is forgiven. Just don't tell me to simmer down when all I was doing was putting out credible information.

    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.
