Those complete application packets meeting minimum qualifications will be placed on an employment list. The employment list will be continuously updated as applicants meet the minimum qualifications. When a position needs to be filled, the Police Department will refer to the list for further screening. Should your background closely match the departments’, you may be contacted for a departmental interview/oral board.
Note: The City of San Mateo reserves the right, at its discretion, to limit the number of qualified candidates invited to the selection process.
Prior to hire, candidates will be required to successfully complete an extensive police background check which may include: a driving record review, reference check, and a Department of Justice (DOJ) fingerprint check, polygraph and psychological examination. A conviction history will not necessarily disqualify an applicant from appointment; however, failure to disclose a conviction will result in disqualification from the recruitment process.
Candidates with a disability who may require special assistance in any phase of the application or testing process should advise the Human Resources Division upon submittal of application. Documentation of the need for accommodation must accompany the request.
