How long does the hiring process take?

Once a hiring cycle is approved by the Police Chief, the length of that cycle depends on the position being filled. In the case of a Police Officer position, the process can take several weeks for the formal process to be completed. Once the formal process is completed, selected candidates move to the background phase which can take an additional 2 to 4 weeks.
