Please join us at our upcoming Gwinnett County Police Officer Hiring Event!
This is a special opportunity to complete the entire first phase of the two phase hiring process. Conditional job offers may be given during this event. Those attending will complete some or all of the following: physical ability test (obstacle course comprised of 9 interspersed individual tasks), an orientation, more detailed application, credit check, and an oral interview. The entire process typically takes two to three hours, although it may take longer. It is suggested you bring water and a snack. Part of this event will occur outside.
Prior to attending the event, please submit an application. Once an application has been received, an investigator will call to set up an appointment time for the event. Because of COVID precautions, completing on-line applications in our computer lab is no longer an option. Thus, walk-up applicants will be directed to complete the on-line application on their personal device. Those that have submitted applications but do not have an appointment are still welcome although wait times will be longer.
