POLICE OFFICER APPLICANT SELECTION PROCESS
The Robinson Police Department is a progressive, forward moving agency, always in search of career minded, qualified people to join our staff. The selection process for police officers is vital to the operational effectiveness of any law enforcement agency, as a department can only be as good as its people.
As you move into the selection process, you would do well to treat each step as a "test". The application is not unlike much of police work, in that it requires a great deal of written instruction and communication. The work you do to retrieve the requested information is not unlike some investigative tasks performed by officers. We request that you are completely honest when you fill out the application and when you provide any other information, so that our assessment of your qualifications may be equally as honest.
THE SELECTION PROCESS
The selection process is quite lengthy and cannot be accomplished in a short time. The process includes several steps, including:
Applicants should note that the information they provide to areas of concern such as employment history, driving record, criminal history, use of alcohol and/or illegal use of controlled substances or drugs, may not automatically be disqualifying. However, any false information, misstatement, or omission of material fact in reference to these concerns will subject the applicant to disqualification or dismissal.
The stages in the selection process are evaluated in different manners. Various stages of the selection process require a specific passing score, or they may be scored pass/fail only, while other steps do not receive any scoring.
