To All Police Applicants:
The Seminole Police Department has constantly maintained the highest standards in the selection of personnel who will represent the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the Department.
All applicants will be required to submit a pre–screening application. This application will be reviewed internally for its completeness and accuracy of the information provided. If it is determined that your application meets the minimum standards set forth by the department, then
you will be scheduled at some point during the background process for an interview. The interview process may include a panel comprised of various ranking officials from the police department.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they possess the following:

guilty of a felony, or of a misdemeanor involving perjury or a false
