The City of McAllen will be administering a Civil Service Examination for Entry Level Police Officer on Friday, December 9, 2016. Pursuant to Chapter 143.024 of the Government Code, the following notice is being posted.

The examination will be based on the person’s general knowledge and aptitude and will inquire into the applicant’s general education and mental ability. The examination is scheduled for: Date: Friday, December 9, 2016 Time: 9:00 a.m. Registration: 7:30 a.m. Location: McAllen Convention Center Address: 701 Convention Center Blvd McAllen, Texas 78501.

 In order to be placed on the Entrance Eligibility List, an applicant must pass the examination. The ranking of the applicants on the entrance eligibility list shall be based upon the highest total score resulting from a passing grade on the written examination plus any military service or credit as required by Chapter 143, if applicable. In the event of ties in final total scores, the applicant’s rank on the eligibility list shall be determined by the highest number of correct answers on the exam (the person with the higher exam grade will be placed higher even though the final total score is a tie).

If a tie still remains, then the order of ranking shall be determined by giving the highest positions among those sharing an identical total score and an identical exam grade in the order in which the applicants signed up for the examination (i.e. those signing up earlier will be given a higher ranking).

The eligibility list created as a result of the examination will be in effect for one year after the date of the examination or until all eligible candidates have been passed over. The deadline to submit your application is Wednesday, November 30, 2016 by 5:00 p.m. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Civil Service Department at (956) 681-1407.
