Boardman Township Test for Entry-Level Police Officer

The Boardman Township Civil Service Commission will be administering an Entry Level Police Officer Exam on Sunday, October 9th, from 6:00 pm to approximately 8:00 pm. Additional information including eligibility requirements and registration material will be posted on the Boardman Township website https://www.boardmantwp.com/civil-service/

The testing process starts with a two-hour written multiple-choice examination administered on October 9th. Additional points are awarded based upon military service, educational background, and current OPOTA-C officer certification. Drug screening, medical physical, physical fitness tests, and panel interviews will follow the initial written examination based upon a ranking of the candidates.

Applicants are able to apply for and take this Boardman Civil Service test without a completed OPOTA- C police academy certification. At the discretion of the Boardman Township Trustees, a candidate completing all applicable civil service requirements during the testing process may be selected for conditional employment and attend an area police academy at Boardman Township’s expense, while also earning pay and benefits as a conditional employee.

Compensation: The wage scale for non-rank patrol officers is $40,456 to $67,142 with wage/step and cost of living increases based on the collective bargaining agreement. Pay increases with shift differential, contractual incentives, and available overtime. Officers also receive health care benefits including an annual health savings account, annual uniform allowance, and other contractual benefits (holiday pay, shift differential, overtime, opportunities, etc.).
