Kerrville Police Department's Recruitment & Training Unit
The Unit is responsible for the Recruiting process from the receiving of the original application to scheduling background investigations, physical task test, polygraph examinations and psychological examinations. An Interview Board comprised of supervisors and command staff officers evaluate each candidate during the final stage of the recruitment process.
All TCOLE legislatively required training is scheduled for every officer. In addition to the mandated training, each officer is encouraged to determine their own career path, and in turn, the training officer attempts to match the officer's desires with the needs of the department.
This agency has an abundance of talent, and many of the officers are certified instructors whose expertise is utilized by the training officer in teaching required courses.
