It is essential that an applicant provide complete information in identifying their experience. The Supplemental Questionnaire will be used to evaluate if an applicant meets the minimum qualifications.

Written Examination (Weight = 100%): Candidates will be administered a written multiple-choice test to determine their relative knowledge, skill and ability level in one or more of the following job related areas as appropriate. These areas may include, but not be limited to: Ability to write accurate and clear reports of incidents; knowledge of safety and security procedures to include the general techniques and practices for public safety and preventing loss or damage to public facilities; and ability to deal tactfully with the general public and staff by providing customer service in a polite, helpful and appropriate manner.

Conviction History

As a finalist for a job, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you are a finalist. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:

  • Candidates applying for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.
  • Candidates applying for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.

Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.

If you are selected as a finalist, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
