Question Tips for Applying for CPS/What to Practice quote:

So I am applying to the CPS this summer/fall, and I have a few questions about the application process. I have collected all the references and everything required for the paperwork; but I am concerned that I need to practice for the panel interview. I am wondering if anyone on here has any sites or documents I could use to prepare. Perhaps TrafficCop would like to weigh in.

Any help would be great, seeing as this is a career that I have been working towards for some time now.

PM me if you have any good people to talk to or have specific info.

Jory

Just make sure you're 100% honest and really think through your answers during the panel. My friend went through it a couple of years ago and it was the most stressful week of his life.

I went to a recruiting information session last year and I'm pretty sure that the officer leading the session said they hold practice classes for the interview. If I were to apply, that would be the hardest part for sure.

I see that it is recommended for responses to be in the 6-8 minute range for each question. If you have an applicant that tends not to have much fluff in what they say in person and comes up with a 3-4 minute example yet still covers all points with the STAR format, would you see that as acceptable?

Um trafficcop, couple questions.

Let's just say I decided to try to become a cop...are any criminal records a no go? Arrest records? Is it true that you can't have done drugs for three years?

From the CPS application form. Doesn't say anything specific to drugs, but I assume drugs would fall under 'criminal activity'.

No criminal records except where a pardon has been granted. As for drugs, arrests records etc, look at the PDF disclosure portion on the recruiting web site. You are also required to be 3 years clear of any criminal activity detected or undetected.

Why not just be a fireman? Everyone appreciates them. Oh yeah, you dont get to be a douce(yup, i mean douce, as in poop) all the time


All just my opinion of course!



I think the law enforcement community would be better off without you or those who think this way. You're right: be a firefighter..
