Place to store/voucher phones?


Will the testing site have a location for us to store our cell phones? I understand it say no phones but I will be taking the train, I dont want to be without a phone incase of an emergency/family. Will they accomodate us in having a designated area to drop off phones?

I really hope they do not allow phones to be brought in at all!!This day and age with smartphones and patrol guides on phones, it really isnt fair for people to bring their phones and have to go to the "bathroom" and let look up the patrol guide on their phone. Will they be frisking us? I dont see how they can prevent phones from being brought into the testing site but no phones should be allowed into the testing site.

I have to agree with Kev for exactly the reason he gave. I've been studying my ass off for this test since April and I would have a hard time accepting the fact that someone passed or scored higher then me because they had no integrity and decided to cheat their way to a passing score. But of course you hope this wont be the case but then again there are perps on this job let alone people who wouldn't think twice about cheating. You could pretty much get the PG downloaded on any smart or iphone these days. The bathroom example was a perfect one. NO PHONES PERIORD !!!!

Although this is my first test and i do understand that someone follows you to the bathroom but if you gotta take a dump i doubt there gonna sit there ask you to leave the bathroom stall open and watch you take a sh.it. I mean I could be wrong. Again this is my first test.

I'll give you a hint. If during a strip search, you visually detect that a prisoner is boofing his phone, you need to obtain a search warrant, and the assistance of a medical professional to remove it.

if you have to take a "dumP' during the test, nobody is going to come into the stall with you and watch you wipe your butt, that is just ridiculous lol, therefore no phones should be allowed. period.

Kev I was being sarcastic, I know no one is going to sit there and watch you take a dump, but that leaves open the possibility that someone can bring their cell phone into a stall and look up answers. Hopefully no one does that. NO CELL PHONES PERIOD...

I agree that no one should have a cell on them during the test but they should accommodate test takers that take public transportation to have an area to leave your phone in and you can pick it up at the end of the exam, incase of police action needs to be taken in route to your destination and need to call for assistance!

People got by for thousands of years without cell phones, you'll be okay without yours for 6 hours.

I don't believe Jesus Christ, Ghandi, Mother Theresa, Adolf Hitler, Warren Buffet or Bill Gates started their careers with cell phones and look what they accomplished.

He sounds like a house mouse. Scared to be on the street while off duty as well.

Why should they accommodate test takers? Better yet ask yourself this question. When has the NYPD done anything to accommodate us? And before you answer that question, I know DCAS administrates the test. Im just saying. Your excuse on having to take police action isnt a good one. Whatta you think cops did before the cell phone era??? Listen leave your phone at home. Im sure you'll survive the 6hrs without one.
