Irving Police will need an official DD214 in order to complete a background process and complete the hiring process. Applicants need to take the police test that is closest to when they have their official DD214. The official DD214 is needed within 30 days after taking a police test in order to complete the background process. The department recommends military applicants apply when they are in a position to start work. The city cannot hold any position until the end of an enlistment period.
