Practice interview questions and answers
The police interview process could be a bit nerve-racking for candidates, but it's
especially tough during the scenario base questions. The questions by themselves are
relatively easy to answer, but when the panel starts asking you follow-up questions to
your responses that's when it can be tough.
Here's a typical step by step look at how a scenario question and answer session will
transpire during the oral board interview.
Q: You are dispatched to the crazy ed bar in reference to a disruptive drunk male subject.
Upon arrival you notice that the male was a lot bigger and a lot stronger than you. The
male subject is loud, belligerent and threatening to cause harm to you. What do you do?
Applicant Answer: I would wait for backup before making any contact with the male
Follow-up Question: Backup is 1 hour away, what do you do now?
Applicant Answer: I would then talk the subject into walking outside if possible to gain
a tactical advantage.
Follow-up Question: He refuses to go anywhere, and the bar is full to capacity.
Applicant Answer: I would deploy a non-lethal force on him like a chemical spray or
Follow-up Question: Your chemical spray and taser are ineffective.
Applicant Answer: I would then reach and grab a hold of my baton and order him down.
Follow-up Question: He refuses to cooperate and is becoming more angry, and agitated.
Applicant Answer: I would then deploy my baton to his leg and arm.
Follow-up Question: He overpowers you and takes the baton from you and starts walking
toward you as he yells,and swing the baton at you.
Applicant Answer: I would then get separation from him, and unholster my firearm. I
would then order him to drop the weapon.
