    A total of 60 people are going to be hired this time around. There will be 2 days of backround meetings, this Thurs. and Fri., so all offers should be made by then. They want to start the academy ASAP and they are already funded for all 60 recruits so things SHOULD move along pretty quickly.

    Word in the firehouses today is that only 15-20 calls have been made for initial conditional offers. They don't want to overwell HPD with all the backgrounds at once. Supposedly they are also in the process of hiring and doing backgrounds for HPD class. Anyone who has not gotten a call should sit tight.

    Either way you will get notified of the outcome. Backgrounds are done for the 70 that were selected (10 alternates) and medicals are underway.

    We didnt have time to introduce ourselves during the background meeting. So i really dont know. The detectives were working us through the paperwork and finger prints for a couple of hours. No one stayed behind to chat cuz it took longer than anyone expected.



    PM with a name and maybe it will ring a bell from the names that were read off.
