Can LEO people here tell which agencies are still hiring in California even in these times? My son has graduated college and is going to start testing. Anywhere in California is fine. A web site would be cool too.

CHP is his best bet if he has no experience/ POST basic academy certificate.

In these hard times, agencies want people who are proven to be committed, by either putting themselves through or having been through already.

Los Angeles County Probation Department will probably open up 300 positions in the next two months (if all goes well). we are not accepting applications at this time, but keep checking the website every week to see if they reopen applications. We hired 450 officer last fiscal year. We are only 19 days into this fiscal year and we have already hired an additional 37 so far.

The last I heard Richmond was hiring about 30-40 officers. I think they picked up about 20 officers from Stockton.

You have to go through the CHP academy if you want to get hired by them, so he would have to go through an academy again.... but it is an option.

They "raised the bar" this time around for hiring plus they're looking for a lot of females. Not to mention the budget crunch and unemployment rate in LA county is in right now doesn't help any

They are only hiring a couple, and with 400 plus sac county deputies layed off at the end of the month, chances are slim and none!

Well he/she is forgetting 300 plus On-Calls deputies that do the same job as regular deputies but without benefits. As the department likes to call it, its the farm team. You prove your worth and you get bumped up to the big leagues. Only a small percentage are retired annuitants, but the bee would have you think otherwise!

Most of US were dependent on that income. To sum it up the department will not run properly without us and now services are really going to suck(I know they suck now as we are understaffed before the layoffs).

Rumor is that CHP currently has enough applicants approved to keep their academy stocked until 2012 with a lot more in the process. Still worth applying though, as a lot of those people will move on to other agencies because of the wait.
