    Nothing yet, they are supposed to send your application and their interview notes to the board of commissions and from there they continue on with the step. I figure by now they would be done with interviews though at least.....

    Figured as much since I haven't seen a PD NOT use a polygraph in the process. Mind if I ask you what your source is though?

    Edit: So no source then. I'll stick with the reliable information on the website.

    • Testing Procedure: Stages of the selection process include:
      • Physical Test
      • Orientation
      • Written Exam
      • Interview with Police & Fire Commission <---- I am here
      • Background Check
      • Psychological Exam
      • Medical Exam

    No polygraph or final interview is listed here, so I am wondering if the process for this department is really that easy.....? I figure by the end of May interviews should be done, so I wonder if they are going to spend the majority of the summer doing background checks and if so maybe they will have us fill out some sort of background packet?

    Also, what does a medical exam consist of? I've never done one before.
    That process is still not easy. You still have to come bring your A-game at every step. You still have a background check to go through, and every department does theirs a bit differently. Just because you have past one, doesnt mean you are guaranteed to pass this one.
    And the psych test is a toss up honestly, either you fit the department profile or you dont.

    Good luck. And a medical exam is an exam to see if you are fit to perform the job.

    Good luck to everyone who interviewed today. While doing my research I really came to like what this police department and town are about. It is definitely a gem. I would be honored to be a part of this team.

    And as with nice places that are surrounded by other high end towns, small things become a big deal. Expect to write a lot of traffic.
