I have recently decided I want to try and be a police officer where do I start what must I do to get started
Take the NPOST test through SLCC. Work out, specifically targeting push ups, sit ups, and running 1 1/2 mile. Check out our PT standards on SLCgov.com/joinourteam as well as the PT hints on this forum. Put in your application at the link on our website and join us for the recruitment seminar on Jan 10th at 6pm. I will post more information about this seminar soon. The job of a police officer is the best job ever. Please feel free to email us with any specific questions at Recruitment@slcgov.com We look forward to meeting you.
So will I need to do the NPOST test before I fill out a application I already work out all the time the physical part should not be a problem for me at all
Yes, the State of Utah requires the passing score of 80. Since this is a state requirement, we must have your test scores submitted with your application.
Ok perfect what is the best way to study for this test and typically how long does it take to get the test results back
Also when is the police department hiring will I ha e enough time to do the test and get it back to fill out an application before your next hiring date
We are on continuous hire right now. We have several academies a year for new hires, so I would get everything done as soon as you can.
Thank you very much
