      Thx Jaysam.. Does the letter specifically say it's not a cjo? My understanding was the LAFD won't spend the $ on med/psych for a candidate unless they have been selected for a cjo.. Some say a med/psych appointment letter IS a cjo.. What do you know? Anyone else have an opinion on this?

      • 2020 I’ve heard that the letter/email is “considered” a cjo as well but mine only says “congratulations you’ve been selected to move on to the next step in the testing process” and nothing about a cjo. However when I did call a few weeks ago to schedule I was told the CJOs come from the fire side and that I should have one by the end of the week... that was 3 weeks ago and never received anything, I would imagine the holiday has slowed things down a bit. Just looking forward to get through the medical and physc at this point. It’s been a long process! And I know a lot of people say it, but take it from me, until you get that non select letter your still in the fight. Just stay positive and keep bettering your self along the way

          Thx very much Jaysam. That clears it up for me and makes total sense now. Good luck to you!

            After backgrounds the next next step is to get 'panel reviewed'. If the panel approves you to move forward, then you will receive a cjo and get med/psych appointments. The real question is -when will you get panel reviewed?. If anyone out there knows how often the panel reviews candidate files, please chime in here. It seems like panel reviews are only done about 3-4 months before each scheduled tower, so twice per year. I don't know if this is correct, but it seems like the pattern. Anyone else know?.
            gotcha, and this is where I stopped last time in the process. i wonder what things they are looking for in a candidate to move onto medical.

              Dude thats the same thing that happened to me except i didnt get selected. I will hit the year mark since my interview in Feb 2020. will it still affect my packet since im in the panel review portion? its not like its my fault it took them a year to get to my packet
