Recruitment Procedures

Recruitment Schedules
A recruitment for police patrol officers is held once every year and a recruitment for firefighters is held every 2 years. The commission also holds recruitment for promotional positions within the Fire Department for the assistant fire chief, fire captain, emergency medical officer, and fire engineer. The police sergeant position is tested for on a yearly basis.

Recruitment for all other entry-level and promotional positions are conducted on an as-needed basis. Please note that some positions require additional testing such as oral boards, agility tests, or performance exams.

Eligibility Lists
Eligibility lists are established after all testing has been completed. The Human Resources Department then hires or promotes candidates from these lists.
