After you pass both the written and physical abilities tests, VPD will contact you via email and invite you to an oral board interview with us. If you signed up for text messaging through PST, you would also receive a text message. The oral board interview does not require police specific training or knowledge. Your oral board interview will be scored. Your written test score will be combined with your oral board score. If you meet or exceed the minimum required score, you will be placed on a list of certified candidates. Candidates are assigned in order of score to a background detective who will guide you through the remainder of the hiring process.
