  • Oral Board Interview....

    I am currently a reserve officer for a small department. I applied for a full time position and am going to interview for a full time position soon. What are some questions I might face? or what advice can anybody give me to succeed and nail the oral board interview.

    Specific questions will vary from agency to agency, however, in general they usually cover one or more of these topics:

    • Experience – assesses your ability and experience in accepting responsibilities and performing assigned tasks as demonstrated through achievements in work, school, and other activities.

    • Problem Solving – assesses your reasoning skills in developing timely, logical responses to a wide variety of situations and problems.

    • Communication Skills – assesses your oral communications skills, which includes speaking, listening, and non-verbal communication.

    • Interest/Motivation – addresses your interest in and preparedness for the peace officer job. It includes an assessment of your general level of interest, initiative, and goal orientation.

    • Interpersonal Skills – assesses many facets, such as social knowledge/appropriateness, social insight, empathy, social influence, social self-regulation, sociability, team orientation, social self-confidence, conflict management skills, and negotiating skills.

    • Community Involvement/Awareness – focuses specifically on your experiences and interest in community issues, as well as your interest in and ability to fill multiple roles and serve a diverse community.

        They may also ask you your strengths, weaknesses, and why you think you would be a good candidate/good match for the agency.

The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.
