The Board will establish an eligibility list of applicants based on final scores. The length of the list is determined by the number of foreseen openings that will develop within the department over the life of the list. Therefore, some applicants that pass all phases of the testing process may not be included on the final eligibility list.
When an opening exists and a candidate is eligible to be hired, an in-depth background investigation and psychological exam will be conducted by the Department. This investigation is an advisory to the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners.
