Hello everyone,


My Name is Erroll AKA Rookie2b. I will be having my first oral board interview next weekend and just wanted to reach out to my policelink family for and available advice. I have a very strong passion for law enforcement and this is an opportunity that I have been waiting on for quite some time; therfore, I want to make sure I use every available resource to help increase my chances of having a successful interview. I am interested in hearing all do's and don't's that  can have an affect on my interview  process so that I can begin a successful career as a law enforcement officer. Thanks You in advance family for  your time and support. Stay Safe!

Will give you same advice as the applicant above, get good sleep the night before, dress well (suit and tie), eat before. Know about the Agency you're applying for i.e., Chief's name, number of officers, City population, etc. Be prepared to answer questions about your driving history, credit history, education, your last 3 jobs and why you left them, past drug use, any prior contact with police (positive or negative). And be ready to put yourself into different scenarios such as: You're on patrol stopped at a red light, light turns green but the car in front of you doesn't move. You approach and see it's your best friend from high school and he/she is past out behind the wheel. What do you do?


I actually wrote a very concise manual on this topic. Check it out at Amazon using the link in my signature area. Thanks and good luck!

Actually I was asking the OP if he had any college or military background, far as giving advice on an oral board I am not qualified are you?

Vested: There seems to be far too much "calling out" of people here in the boards these days. Pay them no mind. You know who/what you are, you don't need to answer to them.




Bessie Braddock: “Sir, you are drunk.”
Churchill: “Madam, you are ugly. In the morning, I shall be sober.”

  I would first make sure the scene is safe for me,occupant,and other motorists,next I would confirm if "my friend is drunk or having a medical emergency",

Good luck and answer truthfully.


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.
