A. TESTING PROCESS (Applicant Status)

PHYSICAL READINESS TEST  (Eligible List Placement)
The test for placing candidates on the eligible list will be a Physical Readiness Test. Applicants who meet the minimum qualifications will be invited to test.

The Nevada Administrative Code Section 289.200 sets the physical fitness standards required for a law enforcement recruit. These standards must be achieved to successfully complete an academy. The City of Las Vegas uses these standards to test applicants for sworn officer positions. This is a PASS or FAIL test. Failing any one of the standards is considered a failure for the entire test. ()
City of Las Vegas Testing Standards:

  • Vertical Jump (15 inches)
  • Agility Run (19.5 seconds)
  • Sit-Ups (30 qualifying sit-ups in 60 seconds)
  • Push-Ups (23 qualifying push-ups; no time limit; but can rest in up position)
  • 300 Meter Run (68 seconds)
  • 1.5 Mile Run (16 minutes, 57 seconds)
Test Dates: March 28, April 25, May 9, and May 23


Candidates should expect a very competitive background and assessment process (with only a percentage of candidates moving forward at each step).

Typical assessments include:

  • Background Investigation
  • Polygraph
  • Psychological Suitability Assessment
  • Medical Fit-for-Duty Examination
  • Pre-Academy Physical Readiness Test
  • Drug Testing
1. Personal History Statement
Candidate information will be forwarded to the department Background Investigation Unit as they are placed on the list. A link to complete the online Personal History Statement will be sent out following the last physical readiness test on 5/23/24.

2. Polygraph Information
The polygraph is by invitation only. A polygraph, popularly referred to as a lie detector, measures and records several physiological indices such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity while the candidate is asked and answers a series of questions. If you are scheduled for a polygraph, you will be contacted by our Internal Affairs Division.
3. Psychological Suitability Assessment Information
The Psychological Suitability Assessmentis by invitation only and begins with a written psychological assessment. The written assessment typically takes 4-5 hours to complete. Before leaving the test site applicants are scheduled for a 30 minute interview with the psychologist for some time that week. Every effort will be made to schedule the interview the day after the exam for out of state applicants. Applicants should prepare to be flexible with their calendar for the days following the written assessment to accommodate the interview.

4. Academy Selections
Candidates who are selected to take the Psychological Suitability Assessment will be considered for selection by Command Leadership. Academy selections are very competitive and based on candidate overall background evaluations and the number of vacancies at that time.

Anticipated selection date is the week of December 16th. 

Candidate Communication
Email will be the primary communication method during the entire recruitment process. It is a good idea to check your emails regularly while you are active in the process, to include checking your spam or trash folders.
