Do you have any tips to help prepare for an upcoming police officer interview?

Are there common interview questions that come up again and again?

You will be asked to describe your qualifications and training. Scenario questions are big. Your problem solving will be judged. I used www.winyourbadge.com the videos and eBook helped...got my letter.

Dear Buckeye Trent.
I ussually use ebook, but never video yet for preparation interview. I think it's really more effective. A good idea!
Many thanks.

I realize this forum is quite old, but I think input is always good in case someone else stumbles on it as I have.

Be prepared to answer scenario questions and try not to observe what the board members are writing down, that will just throw ur head into a twist as to how your doing. Focus on your answers. Use your problem solving skills to reason through the scenarios using common sense. There will undoubtedly be a question that puts you in a moral dilemma, ussually a question on Community Oriented policing and then a section to describe yourself. The biggest tip I have is to be confident in your answers. Be honest. Remember they are looking for real people, not infallible people.

The police oral board is the toughest interview on the job market. Preparing for it will give you the advantage against others. Scenario questions give many police applicants trouble. They are certainly the most asked about in these forums. It is a good idea to practice with actual questions so you will be prepared come oral board time.
