Application Process

12 simple steps: that’s all that lies between you and the most rewarding career you can imagine. It’s not an easy process. It is intended to identify the best of the best, to separate will-be’s from want-to-be’s, and we’re here to support and help you succeed.

The steps below are presented in the order they typically follow; however, scheduling constraints and other factors may result in your completion of them in a slightly-altered order. The entire process from initial application to the first day of your Academy will most likely take several months.


At the Tulsa Police Department, we love out-of-state applicants. In fact, about 20% of our officers are from states other than Oklahoma. From Hawaii, to California, to New Jersey, our team and culture are stronger than ever.

If you are applying from out of state, contact a recruiter to discuss our testing schedule. Reasonable schedule accommodations may be possible to assist you in completing the process.​
