I read (old post at calguns) that there is a mandatory retirement age and retirement plan qualifications, hence the cutoff.

That's how it works for most if not all federal LEO positions. There is an age limit for FAA controllers as well. Military has individual age restrictions for various programs. Flight training, academies, enlisted entry, officer entry etc.

CHP has CALPERS. New retirement plans vest at 10 years of service. An officer could get hired at 50 and retire at 60 and still receive a small pension. Shouldn't that be a personal choice, provided one can meet all standards and is hirable?

That sort of question is far above my pay grade. There are many applications of statute that do not make sense to me, most of the time it seems there is no sense to be made.

Not all age discrimination is illegal.
Pilot's have a mandatory retirement age.
The military has an age cap.

almost anything government seems exempted. I'd like to be in the buddy club, but unfortunately have aged out.

Hey everyone! Figured Iíd give an update. I went through panel with a department already but unfortunately didnít get through. I knew everything I needed to be better than everyone else there but I was so nervous it being my first panel I completely blew it!! Still young and not giving up and doing my best to get as many ride alongs as possible!

If anyone here is willing to PM me personally regarding a ride along with your department I would really appreciate it that way I could get some more insight from departments around my area in San Jose. Thank you all again for your input here!

If itís something you are cut out for and something you really want then donít give up. Many people donít get hired on their first try with the first department they test with. Agencies will be hiring for many many years, so you have plenty of time to get prepared. In the meantime, stay out of trouble and continue to work, finish up your degree, and get some life experience.

Also, each agency is different. I know several guys that tested with my department and didnít do well in LT oral boards, and were later hired with SJ or Oakland. Some tested other places and got hired by us. You now have an idea of what the oral board process is like, practice some more and then re-apply. Get in an application to 2-3 of your top agencies you would want to work for and see what happens. Good luck!
