Yes, and it can take quite a while to get through, I think about a year, the best thing to do would be to go see them or find a recruiters office. Hope this helps, good luck.

The criteria for police departments are generally the same across the nation. You must start by taking the written test, then if you pass that you will be invited to a physical fitness test which consists of push-ups, sit-ups, mile and a half run within a time frame, and a sprinting test. I am a Washington State Patrol officer and these are the main criteria in the state of washington, so start getting into shape now buddy.
