The following date(s) have been set for the Civil Service Test for the position of entry level Police Officer for the City of Tyler. These dates have been posted to assist you for making future plans.

If you meet the College Hours minimum requirements, you must provide a certified copy of transcript from an accredited college (indicating at least 30 semester hours with a "C" average that has been completed by the time the application is submitted and prior to the testing date. If you do not have a current certified transcript, you must order one for the application process. When requesting transcripts be sure to consider College/University holidays and breaks, as this may delay the receipt of your certified transcript and not offer you the opportunity to provide proof of eligibility for the civil service test.)
