Step Two: Search for Available Jobs

Most of the standard requirements to work in law enforcement are objective and easy to interpret; for example, you either are or are not old enough, or you either have a driver license, or you don’t. On the other hand, there are a couple of requirements that may leave you wondering still whether you’re qualified for the job.


Step Three: Take the Emergency Service Exam

Taking the Emergency Service Exam is the most important part of the hiring process. A passing score is 80, but in order to receive an invitation to the interview you will need to score in the high 80’s to 90’s. 

Step Four: Prepare for the Interview

The names and applications of the highest-ranking candidates are referred to the selecting official.  Applicants who are selected may or may not receive an interview.  It is important to record an high score on the exam in order to be selected  for an interview.
