    Police Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 8 months - interviewed at LAPD in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The appliaction process is very streamlined. It begins with a written exam. Those who pass the exam move on to the background investigation. Those who pass the background investigation move on to the physical abilities test. If that part of the application is passed, applicants move on to the polygraph exam, from there applicants who pass move on to the pannel interview. If an applicant passes the interview he or she moves on to the medical examination and psychological evaluation. At the point the applicants name is placed on an eligibility list. Applicants are chosen from that list when a new academy becomes available. I believe applicants are ranked on the list. Those applicants at the top of the list are usually the most qualified and the ones that get chosen first.
