Police Applicants

Applicants should submit their online application no later than the deadline noted on the job advertisement/posting. Applicants will then be scheduled for an oral interview. Top applicants will be required to pass an extensive background check, a physical agility course (similar to that required by POST approved Basic Police Schools), drug testing, medical examination by a licensed physician, and psychological testing and examination. 

Information regarding the physical agility course is provided in the Physical Fitness link below. Applicants are required to complete the fillable forms and bring them with you to the agility course. Do not submit these forms with your application:
