Most police officers are mentally handicapped, how can my military not count to be a stupid cop?

Well you have to do it a lot faster than that!! They gave a min and a half to do it! The only difference is now you have to yell the color to stop the timer and after event 7 your not timed ( not timed to cock and fire service weapon). It was pretty easy though did mine May 17, 2018 :)

Most police departments test you with stretching to your toes, a 1.5 mile run, 40 situps a minute, and 30 pushups a minutes. This test looks like a joke.

Every single activity that we can do when we walk out our front door is either illegal, or you have to pay the government to do it! EVERYTHING! And these people are perfectly fine with enforcing that reality! And they feed their children with money that was extorted (stolen) from all of the rest of us... I used to work for the government until I realized this harsh truth - so because I don't want to be a bad person, I quit...

The dummy drag in no way reflects how police officer would normally have to move someone who is down. Most PD require dummy to be lifted by placing officers hands under dummy arms and move dummy 50 ft.. Having straps on dummy and pulling on straps to slide dummy have really lowered strength standard to a embarrassing level. This must have been done to allow the weaker canidates through process.

When a candidate becomes an officer on the job, do they choose their work shift, or do all officers rotate shifts?


Diana Tumuhimbise 

What is the Time Limit on this Test??


SHAWN MIDNIGT 

I RECEIVED MY BA IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE IN JAN. MY QUESTION IS WITH THE PHYSICAL TEST IS THIS IT OR IS THERE MORE. I APPLIED AND TESTED FOR METRO TRANSIT AND IT DIDNT GIVE PITY. SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO PUSH UP/SIT UP ETC?

The Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Dept. is simply the worst law enforcement agency in the country for which one could work. Do yourself a true favor; if you are seriously interested in working in law enforcement, LOOK ELSEWHERE!!! I'm not kidding, this agency is REALLY bad and their chief (and her "command staff") treat their officers like crap. You won't be happy working here; believe that!!!


JesseNy 

Are the DC police currently recruiting? Just received my associates in Criminal Justice and am looking for work on the East Coast. Also do you offer a Relocation Incentive?


Alex J. Murphy

Harvey Glick 

I put the tag on the green Tshirt, so I failed bering a COP. Now I drive an ambalamps.
