In the City of Galion the police officer position is classified, meaning a Civil Service test is required. This test is conducted after a current list of eligible candidates is exhausted.
When a test is announced, a job candidate fills out an application and receives the date and location of the test. The test consists of both written and physical exams. A new list of eligible candidates is generated based on the results of the Civil Service test, and job interviews are scheduled with candidates on this list.
