The Seminole Police Department Human Resource Unit oversees all phases of the hiring process for the Police Department both sworn and non-sworn personnel. The unit facilitates all personnel issues and employee benefits for members of the department and maintains personnel files and records. The unit consists of the Human Resource Manager and three Background Investigative Aides who provide these services for the Seminole Police Department at all of the Seminole Tribe Reservations.
The hiring process begins with the application process. Our “Pre-Screener” applicant can be found on our website and can be submitted electronically, hand-delivered, faxed or submitted by U. S. Mail. After the “Pre-Screener” is received, applications are reviewed to ensure they meet or exceed our hiring standards. (Minimum hiring standards can be found on the home page of our web-site.) Those applicants that meet or exceed the minimum qualifications may be selected for further processing. Every application is reviewed as it is received by the Department.
Applicants who continue in the process will undergo a series of selection testing and processes including a thorough background investigation. The testing process includes, but is not limited to, Chief’s interview, CVSA, psychological and complete medical evaluation. The background process includes a complete and thorough review of the applicants past histories. These include driving, work, education, credit, and criminal histories. Each background is prepared for Command Staff review and a final hiring determination will be made after careful review.
The Background Investigators and Human Resource Manager represent the Department at job fairs. Job opportunities are advertised in a variety of media to ensure a sufficient number of applicants are available to fill vacant positions.
