RPD Recruitment Frequently Asked Questions

I took the written portion of the Rochester Police Officer Exam on November 15, 2014, what’s next?

We do not know when we will receive the results of the November 15, 2014 exam. However, we do advise those who took it to begin preparing for the next step in the process: the physical agility exam. The physical agility exam is traditionally given two to three weeks after we receive the written exam results from the state. For last year’s exam the results were mailed out at the end of March and the physical agility was held in mid-April.

Regarding the physical agility exam:
