Part 2: What does it take to get hired as a police officer?


In our first podcast we discussed the physical agility, written test, the oral interview, background and polygraph.

In this Behind the Badge podcast episode, Sgt. Phil McMullin and Investigator Jack Nanigian of the Orange Police Department discuss the psychological exam, pre-academy, police academy, Field Training Officer program, and probationary period.

All of these steps are part of the hiring and selection process for police officers.
