It Begins!

The application gathering phase of our process is officially over.  We have collected an impressive pool of pre-applications and now the real fun begins.  We will begin the screening process and be in contact with eligible applicants in the next couple of weeks.  Concrete dates will be available soon and we will be preparing for all of your arrival in Richmond to participate in this extremely rewarding process. 

As for the physical standards, these are being set by a committee and will be posted or sent to you all very soon.  In general you should expect to participate in a combination of general fitness exercises( running, sit-ups, push-ups, etc.) and job-related exercises as described on the website link above. 

I would like to take this time to wish you all the best of luck and we are all looking forward to meeting you. 

See you soon.


  1. Will we also be notified if we do not make it into the next phase?

  2. If you click on the "Additional Information" tab, you will find the following statement:

    "...we will send letters advising applicants of their status. If you receive a formal application booklet, you have proceeded into the next phase."

  3. Have the booklets for the eligible applicants been sent out?
