Reserve Police Officer test date scheduled for June 23rd

The Longview Police Department is seeking qualified citizens to join the Longview Police
Reserve Officer Program. Officers in the Reserve Unit have the same authority and
responsibilities as regular police officers, but are non-paid volunteers who are there to assist and
supplement regular sworn police officer in their duties.

Applicants must be 21 years of age by completion of the Reserve Officers Academy, June 2019,
possess a valid driver’s license, and pass the same pre-employment background procedure as
regular police officers.

Testing will take place at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 23, 2018 at Mark Morris High School in
Longview. The testing process includes a written examination and a physical agility test. The
physical testing consists of a 300-meter sprint, sit-ups, push-ups and a 1.5-mile run. Those
applicants passing the written exam and physical agility test will move forward to the
background procedure.

Successful applicants must then complete a Reserve Officer Academy held in Southwest
Washington. The academy is every Tuesday and Thursday evening, and most weekends from
January to June, 2019. After completing training, Longview reserve police officers are required
to donate a minimum of twelve (12) hours per month.

For more information on the Reserve Officer Program, or testing, contact Ofc. Cyndi Johansen at
360-442-5800 or Sgt. Doug Kazensky at 360-442-5804.
