  • Acceptable dress code for poly and pysch?

    Are slacks and a nice button up shirt, possibly a tie thrown in the mix, good enough for either of these? Or do I need to break out the suit?

    How bad do you want the job

    All contacts with the police or sheriff dept, especially with the polygrapher or psychologis should be in a suit. If you want this job real bad, and I know you do, put on that suit. Sell yourself.. the other applicants will try to take your job away from you. You've went this far, don't lower your guard. Good luck.

      You can never go wrong with a suit unless it is for the PT portion of your testing. Buy one good suit and several different shirts and ties. Bring an extra shirt and tie with you in your car to every interview. Nothing is as bad as spilling some coffee on your shirt right before an interview.

        how about the oral board in a small down, does a suit mean that you are to over dress or would a nice button up shirt and slacks be ok?

          Wear a suit, repeat, wear a suit.

            Interesting, I've never worn a suit to an interview. I've been hired twice and been offere (but I turned down) 2 other jobs.

            Depends on the departments I guess. Or possibly the region.
            Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.

              A suit is something you can not go wrong with for a job that you are going to be in public everyday and having to look professional as it is. There is no exact "code of dress" for an interview, etc, however, it is highly RECOMMENDED

                PKAGEL hit the nail on the head. Buy a suit, get some different shirts, and a few ties to match. You absolutely can not go wrong in a suit. First impressions are everything. Better to be overdressed than underdressed. Good luck

                  but what size of a department, the one that I am trying for as about 15 officers and about 5000 people

                          You know, Maybe they would think it is fine but do you really want to risk it. What is it that you have against wearing a suit anyway? If you make detective you'll be in a suit every day.

                            A city PD of 40 officers in a city of 25K. And a County agency of nearly 500 in a county of almost 500K.

                            I'm not saying I don't recommend wearing a suit, just that I never have.

                            And, our detectives don't wear suits either. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a detective from my Dept in a suit.
