Did you changed the recruitment scheme? I remember that recruitment used to open like every 10-15 days or so (that was like one and a half year before).

On the other hand, having a ban for cheating in my record would play against me? I went through probation like 2 years ago and I even was part of SASD after that, which leads me to my next question: being kicked out of SASD due to inactivity would also put the odds against my favor?

1. The recruitment process is current being revamped, which is why it has been closed for a long period.
2. Recent admin punishments inluding bans, admin jails and kicks do affect your hiring chances.
3. Terminations from other factions will not affect your hiring chances in any way, unless you are banned from PD/SD in which case you will be instantly denied. As long as you're not on the PD or SD ban list, you should not worry about this.

The revamp can take a month, maybe two, maybe more. The very first stages of the recruitment scheme (PBA, PQE, DI) are being focused on now and as soon as those are done, recruitment may open in order to speed things up a little, however, the other stages of recruitment are still being revamped too, such as the tests and the academy sessions we will be having. That means once a person has completed their DI, they are stuck until the rest of the stuff is finished.

Again, it may or may not open early. Asking every once in a while will surely not change the speed of how things go.

I'm locked out of my original PD forum account and don't remember the email or password. Who could I contact to get back on it again?

Hello Jack,

The current requirements state that any person that has a previous conviction may not apply to join the LSPD. This is an IC requirement.
So the answer to your question is unfortunately, no.

You still can apply on an alternative character that meets the requirements or if you namechange on this character.

Hope that helps.

Alrighty, does that mean it'll change anything inside the recruitment like the recruitment proccess or anything else?

The entire process went over a revamp and is currently being finalized, for more information you are going to have to be patient and wait till recruitment opens to find out more information as you apply.

STAFF, Training Division Command and Recruitment & Employment Command are in the final stages of the revamp!

Thus, for everyone who was so patient with us, we got an update in regards to the opening date. As the process is a very complex and long one, it was obvious enough that the revamp can take up for such a long period of time. However, due to the effort behind the scenes, we are happy that we will resume the recruitment process within the next 1-2 weeks (3 at max). An official announcement will be posted once we have the exact date!

Thanks for your understanding and we are happy to see that advancements were made within the process as well.
