Frequently asked questions
There is some consolidation of those appointments for out-of-state candidates, so that the process requires only 2 trips to Seattle after the NTN testing (oral board & post-conditional offer appointments).
Veterans: you need to check off on the NTN web site that you will be claiming Veterans’ Preference Points when you sign-up for the testing. You then on the day of your Oral Board interview you should bring your DD214. If you do not have your DD214 at that time, you will not be able to claim the extra points.

Yes. During the academy you will get to rank your precinct work preferences (Pcts. 2-4). KCSO makes every effort to keep new deputies closer to home for PTO (field training), however we do reserve the right to make precinct assignments based on our staffing needs at the time. Once you successfully complete probation, you may put in a transfer request to any other precinct, or apply to a contract if you meet the requirements.
