    Good Morning to all,

The Town of Herndon is located in northern Fairfax County, adjacent to Loudoun County and Dulles International Airport. The hiring process will be expedited for laterals.

    Would a TX Trooper qualify as lateral?

      Hi,

      I'm currently a DOD contractor right next door in Reston and just recently dropped my application off in person. Do you have any insight as to when they expect to start calling qualified applicants for testing? Also, what does the PAT consist of?

      Thank you

        What portions of the application process are waived for laterals? Does Herndon offer competitive salary levels for laterals coming from other Northern Virginia departments?

          ChaseN, it should be within a month or so. It is probably too late to get in on the next academy but as long as you are on file, they'll let you know soon.

          LochRaven, the written test should be waived on depending on your last poly and background check, it is possible to use your old one. You will get a bump in pay depending on your previous years of service, it may 5% more for every year up to 6 or 7 years. Don't quote me on that but there will be a bump up in pay. If you call PD and speak with the Sergeant in recruiting, he can give you better info. If you are interested, drop paperwork fast because we are seeing a large number of laterals dropping by or calling. PM me for more info.

                Sorry for the late response. I am not sure about the test dates since I do not work in the recruiting office anymore but Fairfax is running several academies this year and next, and we use their academy.

                      Couldn't make it for this Monday's testing on the 15th, called human resources and told them I was still interested hopefully I don't have to re-apply.

                        They may have another date setup in the future but the academy starts in February say we are trying to get the spots filled up. Keep trying though, they will not close the opening until all spots are filled.

                            Do you know what entails on the written exam and what is involved in the physical agility test? Thanks

                              The test basically deals with comprehension and memorization.

                              Here is what is on the physical agility test:

                              FAIRFAX COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT PHYSICAL ABILITIES TEST
                              All applicants must pass the Physical Abilities Test (PAT) in order to proceed to the
                              next phase of the Police Officer and Police Cadet employment process. The PAT
                              includes a weapon manipulation test and two obstacle courses.
                              WEAPON MANIPULATION TEST
                              Part One of the weapon manipulation test is the trigger pull. You must complete 13
                              trigger pulls without dislodging the dowel rods and an additional 7 trigger pulls
                              without the top dowel rod, all within 25 seconds. You repeat this part of the test
                              using each hand.
                              Part Two of the weapon manipulation test is slide manipulation. Gripping the weapon
                              with your strong or dominant hand you draw the slide to the rear and lock it open, then
                              release the slide, then finally de-cock the weapon using the de-cocking lever. You
                              must do this three times within 30 seconds.
                              OBSTACLE COURSES
                              The next stage of the PAT consists of two obstacle courses. Both obstacle courses are
                              timed and the combination of the two times must be 62 seconds or less.
                              The first obstacle course simulates physical tasks involved in chasing,
                              apprehending, and handcuffing a suspect. On the command "go" you will:
                              • Run to a table and move an object from one box to another
                              • Jump over a curb and run around a cone
                              • Duck under a barrier
                              • Run to another cone and change direction
                              • Run up a flight of stairs, circle the cone at the top, run back down the stairs
                              • Run a straight course of 42 feet around to a 200 pound sled
                              • Push the 200 pound sled 3 feet
                              • Run to the set of mats and pull together two weighted boxes
                              The second obstacle course simulates how fast you can exit a vehicle, move quickly to
                              a scene, and rescue a victim, all while wearing a ballistic vest. On the command "go"
                              you will:
                              • Unbuckle your seatbelt
                              • Run and jump over a barrier
                              • Run to a cone and change direction
                              • Duck under a barrier, change direction again
                              • Run a serpentine course back to the vehicle
                              • Unbuckle the seatbelt on a 150 pound dummy
                              • Pull the dummy out of the simulated vehicle and drag it 15 feet across the floor
                              to a marked finish line
