Step 5: Psychological/Polygraph Screening
The Long Beach Police Department conducts an extensive and comprehensive background investigation on police recruit applicants beginning with a psychological and polygraph screening process in compliance with the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST). Applicants will take a polygraph and have a fingerprint examination done. The polygraph examiner and background investigation will make inquiries into areas including, but not limited to, illegal activity, recent or prolonged involvement with illegal drugs and other possible unlawful behavior. Candidates will also be required to pass a psychological screening designed specifically for the position of Police Recruit.
