The Hiring Process
Applications and resumes are accepted only after job openings have been advertised through the State of Oregon Employment office, local newspapers, the Law Enforcement Data System and on the City of Albany HR Web site.
When hiring full-time police officers, applicants are invited to participate in a written and physical agility testing process. The top applicants are invited to an interview before a panel. Applicants are thoroughly screened, tested, and interviewed to evaluate their knowledge, skills, and personal capabilities.
If all the above criteria are met, applicants may be included on a hiring list. When there is a vacancy available, applicants from the hiring list are contacted to determine whether they are still interested in the position.
If the applicant receives a conditional job offer, the applicant must also successfully pass medical and psychological evaluations, and thorough background investigation.
