  • Interview Question

    I am a Police Officer who is looking for a new department. I have an interview with one this week. I have worked as an Officer and have only had that one interview and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to whether this interview I should expect similar things or are these a little different since you already have been an Officer?

    Be prepared to answer questions of your accomplishments as a police officer. Also critical desicions and judgement. Must likely they will ask why will you want to join that agency and what you don't like about the agency you are applying for. Many personal questions might show up too.

    Good luck!

      Of course every agency is different, but in my neck of the woods orals usually center in six areas:

      Experience – assesses your ability and experience in accepting responsibilities and performing assigned tasks as demonstrated through achievements in work, school, and other activities.

      Problem Solving – assesses your reasoning skills in developing timely, logical responses to a wide variety of situations and problems.

      Communication Skills – assesses your oral communications skills, which includes speaking, listening, and non-verbal communication.

      Interest/Motivation – addresses your interest in and preparedness for the peace officer job. It includes an assessment of your general level of interest, initiative, and goal orientation.

      Interpersonal Skills – assesses many facets, such as social knowledge/appropriateness, social insight, empathy, social influence, social self-regulation, sociability, team orientation, social self-confidence, conflict management skills, and negotiating skills.

      Community Involvement/Awareness – focuses specifically on your experiences and interest in community issues, as well as your interest in and ability to fill multiple roles and serve a diverse community.

      These six categories are covered in http://www.post.ca.gov/selection/S&E...uide-final.asp

      This document is designed to assist agencies in the conduct of the interview; however, you may find some of the information useful plus, it contains an interview question bank. While it is a publication prepared for use by California agencies, the standards employed are fairly universal for many police departments.
