IRVING POLICE DEPARTMENT
CIVIL SERVICE TEST REGISTRATION AND INFORMATION

February 10, 2024, Civil Service Exam Results

 Our next test will be in June.  Sign-ups will be available soon.

  • Applicants must score a 70 or above on the written test to move on to the fitness test.

Once the civil service and fitness tests are passed, the applicant is placed on an eligibility list based on the civil service test score. That eligibility list will be available on The Police Recruiting Website within 10 days of the civil service test administration.  

  • Eligible applicants will be invited back to Irving for a pre-polygraph interview and a polygraph. Applicants must successfully pass both components to move into the background phase of the process.  
  • Once the background check is completed, eligible applicants will be invited back again for the oral board. 
  • Upon passing the oral board, applicants will be invited to sign a conditional hire agreement. The agreement is based on an applicant passing the psychological test and medical exam.
  • After passing the psychological test and medical exam, an applicant is given a start date.

Police Academy

All noncommissioned applicants will attend a five-month police academy to obtain a Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) License. The academy is held 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Lateral In-state officer applicants with at least 12 months of patrol experience will be required to attend a 9-week abbreviated training program. Lateral out-of-state applicants with patrol experience may be eligible to attend an abbreviated in-house lateral police academy if they meet the TCOLE requirements for challenging the state test.
