          It's possible they did call everyone. Don't know what their process is or how long they've been notifying, but I have heard they notify up until the morning of class, possibly if others can no longer attend and they need to fill the spots.

            That would be exciting. We would like to extend and offer to join our next academy class starting in...15 minutes

            • I don't believe they are done making calls and extending offers. Lt. Williams just called me and set up my appointment for gear fitting and fingerprinting and I asked about the recruit class list (list of names and numbers of everyone in class so that living arrangements and such can be made) and she said they (the department) are putting it together still and we probably won't get it until day 1 at orientation

                How much time were you given to select a day for gear fitting etc and how many days does it take?

                      I got a phone call and was told here is the day you are to be fitted for your gear, wasn't much in the way of options. Are you coming from out of town or are you in the area?

                        Oh ok, yes I'm coming from about 4 hours away I'm hoping I'm given a couple days notice at least.

                            When I first read that, I thought the class was going to be 140 strong and I said wow.

                            Then I re-read and it made more sense
