Tentative Test Dates
Written Test and Physical Agility Test - 2nd Saturday of month
Community Room A, First floor of Inglewood City Hall

Oral Interviews – Wednesday, two weeks following the Written / Physical Agility tests: Second floor of City Hall, Traffic Counter

Background orientations will be held in Community Room A, First floor of Inglewood City Hall
Applicants to all employment positions in law enforcement are highly encouraged to attend our background orientation. The orientation will give applicants an idea as to exactly what law enforcement agencies are seeking in an applicant. You will have an opportunity to speak with background investigators and understand their perspective as they process applicants for positions. When applicants leave the orientation, they will have a greater understanding as to what they need to do to increase their chances of getting hired with an agency.


The majority of invitations to participate in our testing processes are conducted via email. It is incumbent that applicants regularly check their email so as to not miss invites to participate. Please ensure that your email is legibly written on your application or your invitation to participate in our processes might not be received.

If IPD email is being marked as SPAM by you're service provider, please ensure you add it to your safe sender list. Instructions for major providers can be found here.

In the event you submit an application and do not get a response/invitation to the written examination, please contact the Background Section at least TWO (2) days prior to the test.
