    Most all depts are like this (a step of two might be switched)
    Written Gen Knowledge Test
    PT Test (usually Sit-ups/Push-ups/1.5 Mile Run)
    Oral Interview (usually a board of 3)
    Background Check (credit, criminal, civil, where/who you lived with, etc)
    Polygraph
    Medical
    Physiological
    Final Offer

    Some have a 2nd Chiefs interview in there somewhere. Federal Hiring can be much different or very close to the above, just depends on who.

      Both, actually.

      The top fitness guy overall was in his early twenties, but the two fastest runners (times just over nine minutes for the 1.5-mile run) were both "old guys" in the class. Most of our class who were in the worst shape were either young or chain smokers.

      I went to a regional academy, though, and their PT tends to be a joke - especially for those of us who were former military.

      The comments above reflect my personal opinion as a private citizen, ordinary motorist and all-around good guy.

      The aforementioned advice should not be construed to represent any type of professional opinion, legal counsel or other type of instruction with regard to traffic laws, judicial proceedings or official agency policy.
