LOCAL TESTING IN CASPER, WYOMING: The Career Services Department with the Casper Police Department has been advised that our next upcoming testing process will begin at 9 AM, Saturday, June 1, 2019 at KELLY WALSH HIGH SCHOOL (3500 E 12th St, Casper, WY 82609). The written test will begin at 12 noon and takes approximately 1-1/2 hours to complete. Bring $20.00 cash for the test (the price we pay), and your government ID photographic identification. The written testing should be complete by 2:00pm. We will advise you of the written results after the tests are graded.
You can practice and study for the P.O.S.T. written examination prior to taking it! The test is based on basic arithmetic, spelling, grammar and common sense questions. Performing a general “Google search” of ‘Police Written Examination example questions’ will help. If you are local, you can also chose to take the P.O.S.T. written examination prior to the actual June 1st testing date (You can schedule to take the written before June 1st at the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy in Douglas, Wyoming – You need to call ahead to schedule and pay for the test, if you so choose). Your results of the POST written examination are retained for one year.
ORAL BOARD EXAMINATIONS: If you pass the above mentioned testing steps, you will proceed forward to the oral board examinations that same week of testing (Once again, please plan on staying in Casper, Wyoming through Monday, June 3rd). Due to the unknown number of applicants, we are unsure how many days that it will take to run everyone through. We will make attempts of having the persons from out-of-town do their interviews first to accommodate their particular travel plans.
PHYSICAL TESTING:The physical test will be followed by the POST written examination, followed by the oral board examinations: Should you pass the physical and the written examinations, *KEEP IN MIND* accommodations will be made for oral board examination times for out-of-state applicants due to flights and travel, HOWEVER, please plan on staying in Casper, Wyoming until approximately Monday, June 3rd so that we can ensure suitable oral board scheduling times.
MEET AND GREET:We will be holding a “Meet and Greet” in Casper, Wyoming on Friday, May 31st at 6PM at the David Street Station (200 South David Street, Casper, WY 82601). Please feel free to bring your family with you when you attend!
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: You should expect to receive e-mails from CPD regarding the upcoming testing process. PLEASE BE SURE to check your e-mails regularly for informational e-mails. Also, be sure to check your ‘junk’ or ‘spam’ inboxes in case these e-mails are filtered there. This has happened in the past!
TRAVEL: For those who are traveling from out of town and are in need of a ride from the Natrona County Airport to a local hotel, please let us know when you are arriving/departing, and how many are traveling with you so we can make arrangements to pick you up, and drop you back off at the airport.
Email: email@example.com – Please put “Ride” in the subject line. In the past, we have had applicants fly into the Denver CO airport, and rented a car to drive to Casper. It is approximately a four-hour drive from Denver to Casper.
As always, if you have questions about any part of the process, please contact Officer Sarah Stockero (307-235-8250), Sergeant Nunn (307-235-7490) and/or Officer Alyssa Baedke (307-233-6613).
