  • King County Sheriff's Office Oral Boards

    I have an oral board with KCSO and was wondering if anyone can give me any tips for the KCSO oral boards? I already know the basics of studying up the department, area, situational scenarios, etc. I'm looking more for insight into anything different or uniquely difficult that KCSO has in their oral board that I can prepare for.

    I had an oral board with Kent Police and I feel like that KCSO oral board would be harder because there is so much more information involved. Thank you.

    I tested with Kent as well and haveman Oral Board with KCSO too. When is your board with KC?

      The SO offers an informational presentation one Friday a month in Seattle. Go to their website to get more info.

        The next one is in June so they're not going to be able to do it before the OB.

            I had my oral board with KCSO on Tuesday. They said I should be getting my results back in two weeks.

            Last I heard from Kent about three weeks ago was I was ranked 5. Haven't heard from them since though. I'm not sure I'm high enough on their eligibility list to proceed.

              Talked to a Kent Sgt. a few weeks ago. He said they are having a difficult time finding people to hire. So if you have everything squared away, you probably have a good shot.

                  Nice, I'm ranked 3rd and they haven't contacted me yet either. When I talked to the recruiting officer, he told me as long as you're ranked in the top 19, you'll be ok, since they have a rule of 3 and they have 5-7 positions left to fill

                    Top 19? That's a lot of people for only hiring 5-7.

                    I have been talking with another applicant and they said that they went through their background in a week (unheard of). And they have the chief's interview soon.

                      Rule of 3 means that for each open position, they will do 3 backgrounds per that position. KCSO told me they currently have a rule of 5 and yeah, I heard this applicant for KCSO say that his background took 2 weeks...which is crazy fast lol
