Step 4: Oral Interviews
Following the orientation presentation, candidates will be scheduled for a Chief’s Oral Interview and a Background Assessment Interview (BAI).
The Chief's Oral Interview panel consists of one Long Beach Police Officer and one community member. Several structured questions will be posed to each applicant. The questions are designed to evaluate the applicant's knowledge of relevant topics and assess their communication skills. The better prepared applicant will have a good working knowledge of the City of Long Beach, its rich diversity, the Police Department, and the many events and attractions that make Long Beach great.
The BAI will be conducted by background investigators. It is essential that candidates be completely honest. Dishonesty is grounds for immediate disqualification.
NOTE: All applicants are encouraged to order and retain their medical records associated with their current medical conditions and procedures, physical symptoms, limitations, restrictions, and the use of medications and drugs, immediately following their successful completion of this step.
