The physical abilities testing, which consists of pushups, sit-ups and a two (2) mile run, is pass/fail.
No rescheduling of individual portions of the testing process is permitted.
The written test consists of a timed, twelfth grade equivalency test, that covers math, spelling, vocabulary and reading comprehension. Click the below link for a study guide and test taking tips.

An applicant who fails any portion of testing can reapply at any time and repeat the complete testing process at the next test period.
An applicant who successfully passes the physical abilities tests and written test will proceed to an oral board interview. Those applicants that successfully pass the oral board interview will be given a series of psychological test to determine suitability for a career in law enforcement.
Applicants will also be given a comprehensive personal history form to take home with them to complete. The personal history forms are required to be completed and returned within two weeks.
