Sgt Results in Your E-Mail

Yup, they're out there.

Now what?

Sgt's are up to strength, so no classes for a while? Or are they going to over-promote a first class in anticipation of a Lieutenants class? But Lieutenants are up to strength, too.

At least we've got some results.

So how exactly do you get a double decimal point score? If they ask you to list 5 things you should get 5 points right?

Over promote? That would make sense, SCC. I have been complaining about that for the longest time. Promote in the wrong direction, too. Promote dicks, just to promote Sergeants, so you are constantly short in the ranks. Makes more sense to promote Sgt's, 1st, but they never do that...

Last list was 421 off the list. The 421 does not include merit picks. I will assume, based on past tests I've taken for sgt in my past 26 years if your rank without merit is under 400 you will get made. I took this test along with every other sgt test and not made the cut.. 662 on this one. Retirement in 3 years or so. It's been a fun run as a blueshirt. To all under 400 on the list good luck. You will not make it as quick because of merit but at least u will make it.

They got to 416 on the old list.
The test before that they got to 386.

So unless you scored under 300 on this new test nothing is a guarantee.

So, much for that I was 445 on the previous list
And 490 on the list they just took down. This test I am 1405 so I guess I am a blue shirt for ever. I can blame the merit for not getting made on the first two tests, but now the only way I can get made is by merit. No clout so thats that. Just out of curiosity I wonder if any one who was made merit on th previous 2 test had a better score then the scores that I had?

Stop with mis information. If your ranking TODAY is 400 or under you WILL make sgt. I say this because you will jump about 20-50 spots throughout the life of the test due to people quiting, dying, retiring, turning it down, not enough school or people already made sgt from the last test... History says 300-400 is still very safe.. 400-450 is getting a little shakey.. If your over 400 right now it's not out of the question but not looking too good

I'm kinda confused on the scoring. What's with the decibel thing an y not just a straight score. I guess they had 2 do that 4 the clouted kids huh.? Oh well, squad let me get an event numbr 4 this post... If u will

I'm guessing you're confused by a lot of things. Christ, you're an adult complaining about a test score while using numbers in place of words. This might be a good indicator as to why you did so poorly.

I was in the last Sergeant's class. I was in the high 300's. I took this test, I ranked in 60's.

I wish all of you luck and feel for those that are frustrated by the promotional system and hoped that they would score better.

You won't get any B.S. "Study Harder" stuff from me. I feel for people and quite a few of my friends studied very hard only to not score well enough to be promoted.

Good luck to those that did.

This time around, I have to say thank you Dr. Bernstein because I did not do any studying beyond sitting in his class and listening.

To those that scored higher than in the 60's you moved up at least one spot because I was promoted off the last list.

This test was difficult and some really great people did not do as well as they had hoped.

Some know who this is and I feel for you guys and know all of you would have been great supervisors.

It couldn't possibly be that I didn't keep up with my orders as they came out. It couldn't possibly be that I didn't put in more time studying than the next guy that did better. It couldn't possibly be that I am not that bright.

No sir. THEY are out to get ME.

Remember, in the real world it's all merit. At least here you have a shot. Score well enough and they have to make you.

Although I applaud the efforts made by so many while preparing for the exam, some of you are stupid. Yes, it's true hard work does not necessarily equate to intelligence. Some of you are fortunate to have been hired on the CPD and may have slipped through the cracks. Indeed some will continue to move up due to nepotism and political connections. Yet, that does not equate to intelligence and it is also what is wrong with the CPD. Those who are stupid and still become the boss due to a corrupt "merit" promotional system that leads to a corrupt exempt appointment. Yes your stupid and sometimes in charge. So, if your 4000 out and worked hard and studied everyday, your stupid and a hard worker but don't deserve the promotion for all the same reasons you complain about the quality of current leadership and their lack of intelligence. Stop equalizing the intelligence of the policy makers by way of a flawed merit system and start promoting the smartest people. Some people are stupid it a simple truth that needs to be acknowledged. It doesn't mean your a bad person, or not motivated or not a hard worker, it simply means your talents lie elsewhere and your not suited for the master minding business.

Chances are slim but not zero. I've seen lists in the past where over 480 from he list were made. This list 420 were made... Last test about 400 made. Test before that almost 500.. So it dependsz. What will help you is that your number of 480 today will get down to about 430-450 by the time they get down the list with eliminations. Good luck, you're you get it because it's.

Remember ladies and gentlemen, your score foes not define you. If you work on the street and have integrity in your daily performance then you are a success. Over the years you see great Officers get promoted but the classes are always peppered with career insiders who learn the game of testing; the PUNCH words that dictate the correctness of the answer. Then add in merit and the process implodes on itself with weak middle management. What happens is this; not only do the weak links have to learn the rank, they gave to learn the job. The day to day grind has nothing to do with punch words. That they will discover. Remember, house cats plan and alley cats implement and work the plans to functionality.
Don't be shamed if you score poorly and do not let it ruin your moment. Do your best at what you are best at and laugh at the buffoons. In most cases they will need your wisdom before you need theirs.
Stay safe

I have a lot of respect from street smart cops. I have learned a lot from them. However, please remember that there is no way to do well on the exam without having a firm grasp of what is in the General Orders, State Statutes, etc.
The test measures what the law and the orders state. It is simply an academic exercise.
Often what is stated in the orders and what we actually do on the street are two totally separate things. Knowing the difference will take a test taker far in the test ranking.
Just my two cents.

Chances are slim but not zero. I've seen lists in the past where over 480 from he list were made. This list 420 were made... Last test about 400 made. Test before that almost 500.. So it dependsz. What will help you is that your number of 480 today will get down to about 430-450 by the time they get down the list with eliminations. Good luck, you're you get it because it's. Tough number to have. Good luck

One other problem. If they do get that far down on the list, you'll be waiting about 8 years to make it.

God I'm glad there are dumb fucks like you. I studied, I will be in the first class, and I will make about 20-30k per year more than while you wait to get maybe promoted. Thanks for the boost dummy.

No you won't because I'm a detective and you're just a dick.

Oh well I won't make sgt, but if VRI keeps up I'll make just as much money as one.

Yeah, if you work every single one of your days off all year long. I see you're a real genius.

I took the test and I studied my butt off. I studied so much to find out it was all for nothing. I scored 2100. I would love to know how they graded these tests because all the answers I gave were real life, real scenario based answers. And no, in the questions that asked to get discipline on an officer I answered all of them to pull them aside first and talk to them. In real life you don't automatically jam somebody up. This city and department is crooked. I work hard and I answered my questions honestly, not what some test grading college kid or test maker thinks the answer should be. I deserve to be sgt and promoted instead of some girl who sits inside all day or some kid who took special classes. This is real life so I answered real life. This place sucks. This job sucks. This department sucks and IO solutions who made this test sucks. I don't wanna be sgt anyways

I'm 60 years old and I landed 103 on the list. Should I buy my white shirts?

No. You won't be a Sgt. long enough to qualify for Sgt. retirement pay. Save your money for Obamacare Gramps.

Wrong, exempts need 3 years to qualify for their pension. Everyone else it is an average of your last four years non-OT salary. His first sgt's check ups his pension.

For all of those that are disappointed in their results, take some solace in the fact that a detective test is supposedly coming down the road. It is a way better job than sergeant and you can make more money than sergeants too. Take it from somebody who has had both jobs. Study hard for that one.

Can be two 53 someone lying....

I had the same question, How can two people have the same score? I guess I'm not the only one.

7/25/2014 09:12:00 PM

Oops! Sorry. I checked my e>mail again and my rank is 53.5 because you must have more seniority than me.

The scoring of this test is strange. I believe 4700 took the final exam. If the top score is 132 then a score of 66 would put you at rank order of 2350. How can a score of 94 put you at 2692? The test must have been scored as they saw fit which actually means as WHO they saw fit. Makes no sense. Good luck to all who made it in the top 300.

im very disappointed at the results. There is so much BS that God himself doesn't know how the results were calculated and manipulated. I took the 2002 test without studying and ranked 880. Now i study my ass off in 2 study groups and rank 2000. Total bullshit but at least now I can retire in the next couple years. Good luck to everyone
