Interested in Becoming a Future Burlington Police Officer?
The Burlington Police Department periodically hosts entry exams. The Burlington Police anticipates additional openings in the future.
For registration and additional information please visit Police Exam Solutions.
To assist all potential candidates with the selection process, you should begin to work toward exceeding the minimum standards set forth by the Municipal Police Training Committee for academy entrance/exit standards. The Burlington Police Department requires all candidates to meet the 40th percentile to pass the PAT and enter the academy; despite that, the academy only requires a 30th percentile performance (see attached). We have, unfortunately, observed upwards of a 50% failure rate on the PAT in the past 3 recruitment drives. Any failure of any of the events leads to immediate disqualification from further processing through the current recruitment process. Working hard toward exceeding these minimum standards now will ensure a successful result and allow you the potential to move further into the selection process. Refer to the MPTC Health & Wellness Guide for more detailed information.
