Elkins Testing for Police Officer Candidates
City of Elkins will test for entry-level police officer candidates on January 8, 2021. On that date, the physical fitness test will be at 9 a.m., and a written test will follow at 12:30 p.m. Candidates passing both the physical and written tests will sit for interviews on January 26, 2021, starting at 4 p.m.
After interviews are complete, successful applicants will be ranked by overall score on a list of candidates eligible for entry-level appointment to the department. There are currently two entry-level openings that could be filled from this list.
Applicants currently certified as West Virginia law enforcement officers are eligible for a $7,500 signing bonus, although they would join EPD as entry-level officers regardless of current rank.
