Process 

After having successfully passed the application stage, you there on begin the transition into becoming a Peace officer in the State of San Andreas. With this comes great responsibility, and with such responsibility it is only fair you are given the highest standards of training when policing the streets of Los Santos.

You will undertake an intensive process, pushing you both mentally and physically. You will be put in high stress situations which will prepare you for the streets. The tests and training is designed to weed out those unfit to perform the duties of a Peace Officer in the State of San Andreas. The process is lead by the Training and Recruitment team, and your final sign off will be done by the Head of Recruitment. 

Stage 1:

Police Officer Selection Test (POST) will be administered on applicants after passing through the application stage. The POST will gauge their thoughts, their written skills and right out ability to be a police officer in the State of San Andreas. The POST is a short test in it's form with five questions. Two essay questions and three multiple choice questions. The POST does not ask you anything regarding the job or what you have not yet been trained to do.

Failing the POST will put you out of the current recruitment batch and you may be able to re-apply during the next recruitment batch. Passing the POST will forward you on to stage 2.


Stage 2:
