    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at New York Police Department.

    Interview

    I took the exam in January, I got the score as soon as I finished the exam. But, it's really a long wait. They just emailed me saying that I'm qualified for the interview, prepare the documents, interview information will be emailed AFTER I get another notice about my test (# and score).

    Interview Questions

    • Make sure to do the practice exams. You just have to be familiar with the exam. Nothing crazy is going to be on it.   Answer Question
