SAPD Now Seeking New Officers On-Line

By Morgan Montalvo


San Antonio Police Department is streamlining its application process.

A new online  application allows prospective cadets to avoid completing by hand the  preliminary paperwork, says Officer Yvonne Mauricio, an SAPD recruiter.

Mauricio says  the computerized application's "save for later" feature lets  applicants complete the sections between work, school an family time, as  well as review and update information multiple times while awaiting reference letters, transcripts and confirming previous  employment and education specifics.

Once SAPD  receives the electronic document, Mauricio says, an applicant can expect  a phone call from a screening detective who will offer feedback,  request additional documentation, or further instructions. Successful applicants are then scheduled for in-person interviews and  testing.

The online application saves screening time by the department, and minimizes the number of applicant visits, Mauricio says

.Applicants appointed to a cadet class qualify for a $5,000 signing bonus, she says.
