Talking Questions on applying for LAPD

Hello all,

Ive always wanted to get into Law Enforcement (specifically LA Rampart or CHP)... I finally put in my application and will be taking the exam in little over a week. I know this topics been beat to death, but I had a few questions and if any of you could help, I would appreciate it greatly!

1. Am I write in assuming the Pocket Exam is the same as the Written Exam but on a computer/tablet instead?

2. I know with most govt jobs, I need to have information on both parents if living. Well, My dad and I dont have a good relationship; but if I pass the exam, is it better to get in touch with him so I have his information to give them? Does it help that he is a sargeant with the US Army?

3. What happens after I take the pocket exam, do I just go home? Get results right away?

Anywho, Thanks guys!!

I believe there is a website up for LAPD's background specifically... I will try to find it.

Go into the forum and ask. As far as I know, many of them work in the BI department and are happy to help.

If your future reports end up in court, it might be beneficial to understand right vs write.
