    BSO (broward sheriff office) hiring process

    Earlier this week I passed my oral board review....today was my polygraph and I must admit that I was a little nervous.

    After I took the polygraph test the woman who was testing me asked me if I felt unconfortable with any questions and I answered no. Then she said there were some sketchy results with the answers regarding the drug questions...she asked me if i have ever smoked marijuana and I said no..the closest to marijuana I've been was in a car where a joint was being smoked..i probably inhaled a little bit of second hand smoke...

    When she tested me again with the same questions i was little concerned with the marijuana question because of what she had said earlier so I must admit that my heart rate was SLIGHTLY higher than it was with any of the other questions.

    After the test she walked me outside and told me BSO would contact me within 5 days either by phonecall or by letter...

    Does this mean that I have failed?? what do you guys think??

    Why abbreviate BSO when you are just going to tell us what it means directly after :rolleyes:.

    Anyway if you arent nervous during your poly then there is something wrong with you. All you can do is wait and see what the results were.

    My guy pulled the same stuff with me, but he chose to go with my medial and sexual history instead. I left feeling like I blew it even though I didn't lie one bit. And I didn't know I passed for over 2 weeks. So don't worry too much, if you told the truth there's nothing more you can do except wait. Not every examiner will tell you the results right away, in fact I believe they are never "supposed" to. Some just do. You're lucky you'll only have to wait 5 days, let me tell you...

    I realize this is a very old thread, but when I search online there is not much more. Anyhow I am in the hiring process with BSO now. I applied in July of 2013. I took all the test & past (oral, phys, poly ) I was told I was in background when I called back in Nov 2012 yet still I did not hear anything so in Jan of 2014 I called I was told my file is being review by supervisor but yet fed I still did not here anything. I was never arrest but I do not have the best driving record. I had 2 speeding. 1 in 2011 and one in 2012 and. I am certified

    Do anyone know anything?

    Q386-

    We request that old threads be left to lie. If you would like to talk about this, please start a new thread; the last post here was almost SIX YEARS AGO.

    And if you just went into background in November 2013, then relax. The process can take time, and six to twelve months is not unheard of for background times.
