  • Oral Broads

    I was wondering what types of questions are ask at an oral board interview. I understand that there are situational questions, such as, this is what happened, so what would you do in this situation. I am sure that they ask why you want to be a Law Enforcement officer, but is there anything else? Thanks for any information.

    Some I remember during my hunt for a job....

    What do you think the most important aspect of police work is?

    Have you ever lied?

    What's your biggest weakness?

    Your strongest trait?

    If you had to, could you kill a person?

    Should police be held to a higher standard than the average citizen?

    What would you bring to the department?

    All kinds of questions about the city/county/state/village/township you will be working in (population, crime rate, etc)

    All kinds of questions about the DEPARTMENT you are interviewing for (How many officers are there, chain of command, etc)



    ANSWER EVERY QUESTION HONESTLY.



    good luck

      I'm trying to figure out which departments have "Oral Broads" and when can I apply!!!


      If you mean oral Board, then the above post has good info.
      Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
      --Winston Churchill--

        Oral WHAT?
        Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

          If a broad ain't oral, she ain't worth the time.

            I remember a few and here is what I have for you:

            What does community policing mean to you

            Could you ever kill another human being

            Why do you want to work at this department

            Why do you feel more qualified then everyone else

            What are your strengths/weaknesses

            What is an example of community policing

            Have you ever been part of a team to solve a problem

            What does integrity mean to you

            Tell about a time when you had to de-escalate a problem

            Explain professionalism

            Explain Ethics



            Make sure you really think about your answers. They need to be thoughtful and not some BS response. Answer the questions honestly, don't tell them what YOU think they want to hear, and for the love of god be ORIGINAL. I have sat on oral boards and it gets so tiring to listen to people answer the same question almost the same way as the last guy/girl.

              Why do you want to be a police offier for the Departmetn?
              What are your faults?

              Those two stick out in my mind from the past...
