  • Chief’s interview coming up

    I’ve got a chief’s interview coming up for a small department in the Clark County, WA area. Any tips and thoughts on what to expect or how to prepare?

    Seriously, just be y

    Even if you could pretend to be "the guy that fits the department" or whatever, if you aren't everybody will be miserable when you can't pretend anymore.

    Just be you

      As I've said in other threads, don't be a dork. Be level-headed, attentive, appear confident but not cocky. Don't forget to show respect. 'Sir' and 'M'am' should not be used sparingly. Let them see there's a light on inside. They want you to represent the department in the best light so bring your A-game. You have to wear suit and tie or at least a tie - this is not a business casual meeting. Also, don't let your mouth run to where you begin to sound foolish.

      A department manager wants someone they can work with to become an officer they can put trust in. Liability is a big thing on their minds so show them you are the person they can put their trust and confidence in when it comes to decision making. Critical thinking is so very important. Oh, and don't forget about being a team player.

      Good luck!
