Click on the link above, scroll down and look for the Police Registration 2016b. You will have to make an account with the city of Irving. Please put a valid home address that you can receive mail at in the next 6 months and a valid email address. The Civil Service test will be held on September 24, 2016 at 8:00 am. The test location will be at MacArthur High School 3700 N Mac Arthur Blvd, Irving, TX 75062.

Our Human Resources department will be sending you a letter in the mail on August 17, 2016. Please be on the lookout for this letter. You must sign this letter and send it back to our Human Resources department. This will guarantee you a seat at the Civil Service Test. The reason you will have to sign this is so we can order the appropriate amount of test booklets for the test. We will allow some seats for unregistered walk INS on the test day, but that number is undetermined at this time. I would suggest if you plan on attending the test to sign and send the letter back to Human Resources to guarantee yourself a seat.

On September 24, 2016 the doors to the test will close at 8:00 am sharp so please make plans to arrive earlier. After the Civil Service Test you will be taking a physical fitness test. This is a pass/fail test. If you fail any part of the fitness test you will not be allowed to go any further in the process. You may wear fitness clothes to take the civil service test. However if you don't you will be allowed to change into fitness clothes after the civil service test. You will be given the fitness tests in the following sequence below. There will be brief rest periods between each test. Each test is scored separately and you must meet the standard on each and every test. The standards are:
Test Standard
Vertical Jump 13 inches
300-Meter Run 82 seconds
Push-ups 25
One-Minute Sit-Ups 30
1.5-Mile Run 15:44
