The Oklahoma City Police Department will host on Aug. 11 a test day, part of the department’s continuing effort to reach out to the city for entry-level police officer applicants. Check-in for the event begins at 8 a.m. in Room 101 at the Oklahoma City Police Department Training Center, 800 N Portland.
“By testing on a day outside of the normal work week, we hope to accommodate qualified individuals who would otherwise not be able to attend a regularly scheduled test day,” said police Lt. Pat Pollman, who oversees recruiting.
Applicants need to bring a valid driver’s license and should wear appropriate clothing for a physical fitness evaluation. Those successfully completing a physical fitness evaluation will take the academy’s aptitude test. Persons that pass the aptitude test will be considered for an entry-level police officer.
Applications will be provided, but applicants are encouraged to bring a completed application. Applications may be downloaded from www.ocpd.com or picked up from one of the following locations:
— Police headquarters, 701 Colcord
— Recruiting office, 800 N Portland
— Hefner Briefing Station, 3924 NW 122
— Santa Fe Briefing Station, 9000 S Santa Fe
— Springlake Briefing Station, 4014 N Prospect
— Will Rogers Briefing Station, 3112 N Grand
