          It is pretty straight forward and a standard POST test. The physical is standard POST as well. It would probably be good to know facts about the Dept and city if you get to the interview. Good luck.

            North Fontana seems very nice. A lot of new developments.. How is the rest of the city? Is it still "Fontucky" as I often hear it referred to?

              Actually, Fontucky is the unincorporated part of Fontana. This kind of makes working for the city relatively nice:

                Ah.. so does Fontana PD still patrol that area or is that SB sheriffs?

                  The Sherrifs patrol the unincorporated areas. SgtCHP almost answered that in his responce. I think that anything classified as "unincorporated" usually will have some kind of Sherrif organization attached to it. Like how the Orange County Sheriffs have bits and pieces all over the place.

                  I've heard from other LEO friends that Fontana PD is pretty squared away. They have a nice looking website too. I'd apply, however, they require 30 college units of law enforcement related classes - which I do not have. Best of luck to you!

                      The two Fontana officers I have been at training with still refer to it as Fontucky and say the area they worked was trash, but just about every city has some of that in it.

                        Definately.

                        I was acknowledging how nice the city is at the North end.. Hopefully the improvements migrate down to the rest of the city.. Chino seems to be doing the same thing.. There are plenty of area's we could bull-doze in the city I work in.

                          North Fontana is starting to go downhill, its like foreclosure central. Sierra Lakes has seen an increase in crime from what I read in the papers. Below the 10 freeway off Sierra is still nice so far.

                            The north end is still pretty quiet, with the exception of the occasional run of daytime burglaries. Not quite Fontucky anymore. It is way slower than it used to be. I grew up in the city and it used to rock and roll. Still have the same element, but they get their hand slapped and decide to do their dirt in other cities (Rialto). Great place to work and you can always find something good to get into. As nice as the north end is, I still prefer not to live there.

                              I would say Rialto is pretty bad I moved here when I was 13 back in 93'. I've seen it go down bigtime. It sucks because I really like living here its just starting to get to dangerous.
