KYLE – Looking for a job? The Kyle Police Department (KPD) has several openings, and they’re all up for grabs.
The city will conduct its first civil service examination for prospective cops at 10 a.m. on Oct. 18 at the Lehman High School cafeteria. Anyone can take the test, provided they are between 21 and 45 years old at the time of hire, have a valid Texas driver’s license and high school graduation or its equivalent. Applicants must also have either 30 hours of college credit, an associates degree with a C average, two years of active duty military service with an honorable discharge or a peace officer’s license.
Applicants with the right amount of police experience may qualify for additional pay through the city’s modified entry program.
Leading scorers on the test who fulfill the other requirements will be placed at the top of an eligibility list to fill vacancies on the KPD.
With the city’s implementation of voter-approved civil service rules and the passage of a new budget, the city has 10 openings for officers and one more opening for a sergeant.
Applications can be downloaded from the City of Kyle website (www.cityofkyle.com) or picked up at the front desk of City Hall.
