Interviewing Peace Officer Candidates: Hiring Interview Guidelines
Commission Regulation 1952 stipulates that every peace officer be interviewed prior to employment to determine the person's suitability for law enforcement service. The POST Interviewing Peace Officer Candidates: Hiring Interview Guidelines (pdf) are intended to assist in all phases of the interview process.
As a complement to the interview guidelines, POST has a secure Oral Interview Question Bank containing hundreds of questions categorized by the six factors that are required to be assessed during the oral interview process. Access to the Bank is limited to law enforcement agencies and personnel departments who have completed a Use and Security Agreement.
