Police Officer Hiring Process – Medical Exam
The medical exam will only be given to those ready to be offered employment. This will consist of medical personnel reviewing the medical records of the applicant, and may also include the applicant getting a physical examination. The cost of such examination will be taken care of by the hiring agency.
The purpose of the Medical Exam is to determine if the potential employee is physically able to perform the duties of the job. The applicant may have a physical condition or injury which precludes them from performing the physical duties required. Anyone considering a career in law enforcement who that a medical condition may prohibit them from employment, should try and explorer this issued as soon as possible when preparing for their career.
Should a medical condition prohibit someone from a sworn law enforcement position, there are numerous other positions which the applicant should explore that do not require the same physical requirements as sworn officer.
