The Personnel Department made the hiring process very simple. They worked with my schedule and made completing each step very easy. Investigator Gard was very helpful in answering any questions I had about the job or the hiring process. The whole process from taking the test and getting my official job offer only took about 4 weeks. Once hired I got the opportunity to spend some time with various departments within the agency to get a feel for how they operate. This was a great experience and let me see more than just the patrol side of things. My time at the academy has been great. It is a lot of information to take in and learn, but the instructors are very helpful in making sure everyone understands the material. Firearms and driving weeks were by far the most fun. I wish I could say I had the same enthusiasm for the O.C.spray and taser days that are coming up within the next few weeks.
