Applicants may be selected to participate in a series of interviews.
Applicants meeting the qualifications and submission of all necessary documents will be asked to provide a personal history background.
The Personal History Background is designed to identify applicants who do not meet the minimum standards to become a Police Recruit and proceed with the process.
This step may save the ineligible applicant considerable time and effort involved in the interview process.
This step in the process consists of a series of panel interviews.
Candidates will be asked five to eight questions, not necessarily police-related. Pass Point is 70% or higher. Results are valid for three years.
Candidates who successfully complete the Oral Board Interview will be placed on a list of eligible candidates. Candidates selected to advance to the Background Investigation Process will be notified approximately 3 weeks later.
Candidates being considered for appointment will be subject to a polygraph examination and a background investigation. Upon a conditional offer of employment, candidates will also be required to pass medical and psychological exams.
Prior to hire, candidates will be required to successfully complete a pre-employment process, including employment verification and a Department of Justice (DOJ) fingerprint check. A conviction history will not necessarily disqualify an applicant from appointment; however, failure to disclose a conviction will result in disqualification or termination.
