We offer four ways to join our agency:

Physical Ability Test - Candidates must complete four timed pass/fail exercises to participate in the written test. The exercises consist of a 5 1/2' wall climb, 99 yard obstacle course, 150 pound body drag, and 500 yard run. Candidate participation will end at the time an exercise is failed.

When the Police Trainee position re-opens, you will receive an email notification from Human Resources, instructing you to apply.  It will also contain information about the Trainee Orientation Workshops that we offer.  We hold several of these workshops prior to the test date.  At the workshop, you will have the opportunity to practice climbing the 5 ½' wall and you will be able to practice the "dummy drag" (more information about this will be given when the Trainee position re-opens).  Also, there are a variety of study guides available online and at the book stores, to help you prepare for the California POST Entry Level Law Enforcement Test Battery "PELLETB" exam.
