The Kerrville Police Department has announced that there will be an Open Testing and Recruitment event on Saturday, December 2, at the Dietert Center, 451 Guadalupe Street, beginning at 8 a.m. This event will allow those who are interested in a law enforcement career to take the first steps towards joining the Kerrville Police Department. Those who successfully complete the physical and written requirements during the Open Testing will then be eligible to complete the application paperwork and begin the hiring process.
Physical testing will consist of a 2,000 meter row, taken on a Concept 2 tower with a damper setting #5, which the applicant must achieve a 40%. This percentage is determined by a calculator that requires one’s age group (20’s, 30’s, etc.), sex, and weight. Those that achieve a 40% or higher will move on to the written test, which comprises four sections: math, reading comprehension, grammar, and report writing. Those passing the written exam will take the M-Pulse Assessment.
Members of the KPD Recruiting Team will be on hand to discuss the hiring process and next steps for those who are successful, as well as pay and benefits and other information regarding the department. “This Open Testing Event allows a candidate to fast track the testing process before they’ve submitted an application or other paperwork. It’s a great way to streamline the hiring process, and we hope anyone interested in joining will show up to visit with our KPD team, and learn more about the professional opportunities we offer,” said KPD Chief Chris McCall.
Applicants need to turn 21 years old before June 1, 2024, have a High School diploma or GED, and not have a disqualifying criminal or driving history. For further information, email email@example.com, or contact Sergeant Lamb at (830) 258-1371.
