It’s a great way to gauge your strengths and know what you need to work on to move forward in this process.

The practice test will take place at the main police station (321 John Sartain, Corpus Christi, TX 78401). Applicants will meet us at the gated entrance directly across from Whataburger on the Bay (Water St. side of the building). Check-in time will be between 5:00 pm – 5:30 pm, so we can start promptly at 6:00 pm.

During the practice test, instructors will explain and demonstrate each phase of the physical fitness test. We will also be available to answer any questions you have about any phase of the testing and hiring process.
