In addition, if you are not currently an APOSTC “Certified” Alabama law enforcement Officer, and you are selected for employment, you will be required to attend a 13-week Law Enforcement Academy within six months of your appointment. It is a challenging endeavor. Therefore, a pre-agility / ability physical test will be performed as a part of our “initial” Interview / Selection process. This means that you MUST be able to successfully accomplish several physical activities to include completing push-ups, sit-ups, a 1½ mile run, scaling a 6-foot wall/fence, and dragging a 165-lb. dummy, all of which are timed events. There is NO difference in standards for males or females. Please keep this in mind before applying. On average, our interview candidate pool is generally reduced by 40-60 % due to this initial physical testing. Men/women who are currently serving in the Guard/Reserve components normally have a high rate of success in completing these activities.

Questions may be directed to the following: personnel.questions@paroles.alabama.gov

Application may be made by using an official application for examination form which may be obtained from the State Personnel Department.
