  • The Agility test will be administered prior to the written test.  Candidates who pass the Agility test will then take the written test immediately following the same day.  
  • Scheduling will be based on your time of registration.  You will receive notification of your testing date and time shortly after your registration has been submitted.
  • Registration fee of $75 is Non-Refundable.

How it works:

Pay one fee + Take one physical assessment + Take one written exam = Valid test results for 12 months

A single application fee of $75 covers your fee for a standardized written exam, physical assessment, and all PoliceApp processing fees when you submit an application to a participating department during a 12-month period.

Your 12-month application eligibility period begins on the date you take the written exam. During this period, you may apply for any position advertised by a department participating in the LCCPA program online with PoliceApp, provided you meet that department’s minimum score requirements, as well as any other department-specific prerequisites.

Questions may be directed to: 
Chief John Bowman: 717.291.4676
Lt. Tom Shumaker: 717.738.9200, ext 222
Chief Todd Graeff:  717.299.5231


Neither LCCPA nor can control how many departments will recruit over the course of any given 12-month period. A minimum number of open positions cannot be guaranteed. Each department is responsible for its own hiring standards, prerequisites, and hiring timeline. No additional charges will be assessed by during the 12-month eligibility period. All agencies are Equal Opportunity Employers.
