Get Your Hands On The #1 Rated Guide That’s Jam Packed With The Most Commonly Asked Police Oral Board Interview Questions (And Answers) As Well As Tips, Tricks and Secrets That Guarantee You a Successful Oral Board Interview Continue reading →
You can expect that during your police oral board, you will encounter several police interview questions that are scenario based. These types of questions are not designed to test your knowledge of police procedures–but instead, you judgement and common sense. These types of police oral board questions help the interviewers get a feel for whether or not you’re someone with good common sense…or a person that needs to be removed from the hiring process. Now, there aren’t necessarily “right” and “wrong” answers during these police interview questions. Instead, the police interviewers want to see if you can think on your feet and use sound judgment. Again, they do not expect you to answer these questions the same way a police veteran would. So don’t think you have to know police procedures during your police oral board.
Here are a few police oral board scenario type questions:
1. You are preparing to stop a vehicle for speeding and just as you are about to activate your police overhead lights to effect the traffic stop, the car runs through a red lights preventing you from entering the intersection. What do you do?
2. You are off-duty attending a BBQ at a friend’s home. While there, you see several other people begin to use illegal drugs. What do you do?
3. You respond to a report of a suicidal subject. When you arrive, you see a male subject with a gun to his head. The subject tells you that as soon as you leave, he is going to kill himself and if you stay in the room, he is going to kill you first. What do you do?
4. You and your partner respond to a burglary alarm at a local convenience store. As you arrive, you find the door open to the closed business. As you check inside, you see your partner place a candy bar into his pocket. What do you do?
As you can see, these scenario based police oral board questions can be difficult if you’re not prepared. While you are not expected to answer these police interview questions according to the police department policy, you are expected to use good common sense and sound judgement. Presenting yourself as a good, qualified applicant who has a level head, is sure to get you the job. On the other hand, appearing confused or unsure…ir just coming out with an interview question that’s way out in left field, will surely be your demise.
To be certain you’re a top candidate, it’s a great idea to crack down and learn as many of these types of questions as you can. If you’re struggling to come up with good answers yourself, then you definitely want to get your hands on Ace Your Police Oral Board Interview. That’s because not only is this guide jam-packed with dozens of these common police oral board questions, it also gives you the very best answer to those questions. I think the author put together a fantastic guide that you can really use because it gives you such a wide range of questions, that you’ll be covered no matter what police interview question is thrown at you.
I hope these police oral board questions gets your mind working. Good luck!
Police Interview Questions for Your Police Oral Board
The police interview questions that are asked on your police oral board will likely be similar to those asked on the police panel interviews across the country. Knowing what some of these questions are ahead of time will reduce your stress and it will help you to score high on your interview. Prior to my police panel interview (the one that I got hired on), I purchased two different books that dealt solely with the police oral board. Without a doubt, I owe my job and my new career to this one book:

Basically, this book is LOADED with tons and tons of different questions about the police oral board interview. Besides having interview questions in the guide, it also gives you the answers and tells you why those answers are what they are. This book told me how to dress for my police panel interview and it gave some great tips on body language as well. But the meat of this book lies with all th sample police interview questions and answers. Every question asked on my police oral board interview was listed in this book. If you really want to pass your oral board…I urge you to get your hands on this book. I think it was about $25…but definitely the best money I have ever spent.
Police Interview Questions that Will be Asked
Again, knowing what questions will be asked of you in your interview kind of puts you in the driver’s seat. And in this post, I want to give you a couple of questions that will surely be on your oral board. You should definitely be ready for these ones because I’ve read that these are some of the most commonly asked police interview questions around.
1. Why do you want to become a police officer?
2. What have you done to prepare to be a police officer?
On my police oral board, these were the first two questions asked. And I was ready for them (thanks to the oral board guide). Basically, I took the time to make a list of all the reasons why i wanted to become a police officer and another list of everything I could think of that I have done to prepare for the job as a police officer (ride alongs, research on police officer sites, talking to police recruiters, etc).
Since these were the first questions asked and because I already had an answer for them, it kind of boosted my confidence and made the rest of the interview go smoothly because I nailed these two questions.
So, be sure to write these two questions down and be sure to make a large list as to why you want to be a police officer and what you have done to prepare for the job. I don’t think that either of these have wrong answers, but don’t say something that is totally crazy like your preparation for this job is “watching the t.v. show cops.” Remember, preparing for your police oral board in advance is the key to success!
Police Oral BoardThere are several things that you can do to prepare for a law enforcement interview. The first thing I recommend you do, which really helped me, is doing what we call “ride-alongs” with the police department you’re testing for. A Ride-along is simply the opportunity to ride along with a police officer during his or her patrol shift. This could be a 1/2 day police ride-along or you may get the opportunity to ride for an entire shift. Whatever the case, this can be a great help on your police test….especially the oral board.
During the ride-along, you will get to see the police in action, first-hand. You will also get the chance to ask questions, so don’t be afraid to ask what questions might be asked on the police oral board. You can even ask what questions they remember from their own police panel interview.
Another way to prepare for a law enforcement interview, is once you have a list of possible law enforcement interview type questions together, is to look up those questions online and compare your answers to what you find during your research. There are a lot of good police officer and law enforcement websites out there! Be sure to gather as many possible interview questions as you can.
Prior to your interview, you should have what you’re going to wear all ready to go. If you plan to wear a suit (which you should), you should make sure that your suit fits correctly and if not, get the alterations you need. You should also be sure you know where your police interview is going to be and practice driving the route you will take on the day of your law enforcement interview. Can you imagine what will happen you you arrive late to a police panel interview? I’ll tell you what will happen…you will be disqualified from the police test process. So, be sure you arrive early so that there is no chance that you will be late for the interview!
If you have ever taken a police oral board before, then you already know how stressful they can be. I have went through this type of police interview on two separate occasions and I can tell you first hand, they are never an enjoyable experience. The purpose of this website is to provide you with some useful police interview tips so that hopefully, you can avoid the pain that I’ve went through in trying to pass the police oral board interview.
The first thing everyone needs to know about the police oral board is that it is very different than the police exam. You see, the police officer exam (the written test) serves the purpose to weed out those that have a very low chance of succeeding in a law enforcement career. The written part of law enforcement testing is designed not to see how much you know about police work, but instead, to see if you know how to read, write and spell. Having these basic skills is the only way you will be able to move on to the police oral board.
Unlike the written police test, the police oral board interview consists of the police applicant sitting in a room with two or three police officers, who ask the applicant a series of scenario based questions. Because most people have never experienced a police interview in person before, the process can be overwhelming and sometimes very stressful. I have heard horror stories of people clamming up so bad, that they were unable to speak! Others have become so stressed out during the police panel interview, that they started shaking uncontrollably and even broke down and cried in front of the police oral board panel. Needless to say, these people do not walk away with a police job.
So, again, my purpose for making this website is to help others become police officers by providing some useful tips for police interviews.
You Must Prepare for the Police Oral Board
The first tip that I can give with regards to the police oral board interview is that you absolutely must prepare. When you know what type of questions will be asked during your interview, you will have an advantage over everyone else who is taking the police test with you. I can’t stress this enough. This is exactly what killed my chances during my first law enforcement test. Had I known the first time, what I know now, I would already be looking at five years of police department service. Unfortunately, I did not prepare for what was to come.
Perhaps the very best way to prepare for a police interview is to do research online. Through a simple Google search for “police oral board” or “police interview” you will find some results that may help. For me, I found several interview questions and answers by doing this, but nothing really compared to an online ebook that I found that dealt solely with the police oral board process. This book was basically a collection of the most commonly asked police interview questions and answers. Knowing the questions in advance is one thing, but walking into a police panel interview with both the questions and the answers…well, that puts you in a whole new ball game.
The difference between my first law enforcement interview and my second one, was knowing what was going to be asked AND knowing exactly how to answer those tough interview questions. By reading this certain book (my secret weapon), it was kind of like the police department gave me a list of the questions ahead of time…as well as the answers to those questions! It was like I knew what I was going to be asked during the police oral board BEFORE they even asked it….kind of like the oral board panel started the question and my mind was already formulating a prepared response.
Anyway…my point is, you can prepare for the police interview. There are only so many questions that can be asked. This is nothing new and believe me, police work really doesn’t change. So, the interview questions will remain the same (or very close to the same) pretty much forever.
It really makes no sense at all to show up for your law enforcement interview unprepared. Believe me when I say that competition is fierce for police officer jobs these days. Think about it…where else do you have job security like the police department? The pay is good, the benefits are great and working for the government usually means you will have a retirement pension. The fact is, your competition is preparing for the police oral board, so why wouldn’t you?
It’s never too late to start preparing for your law enforcement interview. The interview questions and answers are out there. Even if your police interview is tomorrow, you can be fully prepared by tonight.
In my next post, I will discuss a couple of common police oral board questions that you should definitely expect to hear during your police interview.
