    I think it's one of those "we reserve the right to poly you" but I haven't heard of anyone that has been poly'd by them.

    From what I've heard, there is no poly.

    I don't remember exactly. Maybe a 96? I was Band 1 though (not V).

    Thanks box and I hear ya... It's a long haul with them. It has been just under 3 years since I submitted my application with them originally. Super stoked to almost be there learning.

    Hang tuff and be ready. The waiting was the worse part and there is lots of it.

    Good luck!

    *egrus, sorry just noticed the typo.

    "There are a ton of people that are at the written or further in the process that are not part of 135." <----- that right there is what I'm afraid of. Since I've heard that being assigned to a band is only good for a year, my fear is that there are too many people on band 1/V. Which means that some people might end up dead on the list. It's too early to tell and I get that all of us that just passed the oral should be patient......but in these economic times.....any minute funding can get snatched and it would be a huuuge punt in the junk to be hung out to dry after making it to band 1/V. And once again to clarify, I totally get that County doesn't owe me or anyone else squat.

    Well, we'll see what happens. It'd be nice if the unofficial forum would get back online. I didn't get much use out of it before it was taken down. Thanks again.

    Congrats on family day coming up.....thats gotta be one heck of a feeling.

    Sorry, nothing here. There were a couple of guys on the unofficial county forum that worked for the department that used to help us A LOT with information. I just reshare here. Now that the forum is down I really haven't heard much about any other academies beyond 135. Sure does seem like they are planning more though. There are a ton of people that are at the written or further in the process that are not part of 135.

    Hey ergus....any word on future towers? 136.....137 etc.? I know people on the new list shouldn't expect invites to backgrounds for awhile.....but anxious to find out if some people are going to end up dying on the list.

    Anybody have anything else to add?

    I don't think anyone knows this yet. According to a guy in training on another forum this is a topic that is in review by the new Cheif.

    Yo...not in 135 but I'd be willing to train. I live in Anaheim, work out at the LA Fitness near the block. Just getting back into the swing of things after spraining my ankle in Feb.
