What should I do to prepare for the application process?

There is a lot you can in preparation that will help you in the application process!  

  • Go on a ride along (PDF) with our agency and learn as much as you can from the officers who are currently doing the job you seek.  
  • Check out our physical ability map (PDF) and start preparing for the test.  
  • Visit the City of Grand Junction website to learn about our community.  Also, follow us on social media for pre-hiring events where we’ll be reaching out to engage with potential applicants.  
  • Ask questions! Reach out to us directly, and we’d be happy to visit with you about the process.  You can contact us here.
