The Baltimore Police Department is the 8th
largest police department
in the United States. For the third time in four years, they conducted a two-day examination for potential candidates on CCC’s Auburn Campus on April 26th and 27th in its efforts to look for the best possible officers. This examination is the only one of its kind in New York State, as CCC Criminal Justice Professor John Lamphere was able to negotiate and set this up for not only CCC students but for anyone wishing to become a Baltimore Police Officer. Baltimore Recruiter Greg Ostrander had contacted Professor Lamphere and told him that his agency had great interest in holding its examination at CCC, having looked at all the colleges with Criminal Justice Programs and selecting CCC for quality of program and location.

The examination was held in Spartan Hall on April 26.

In the three years of examinations, over 700 people have taken the exam with nearly 100 having been hired or offered positions. The examination process consisted of a written exam on Saturday, followed by an agility test. Those passing were called back on Sunday for more intense physical examinations followed by an interview process. Those passing were then notified to report to Baltimore for further processing and testing and ultimately offered a position with the department.  CCC has approximately two dozen students now either working or in the last phase of recruitment.

The Baltimore Police Dept. recruiters intend to return in 2015 with the statement that the only site to be offered examinations in New York State is Cayuga Community College.
