Working for the Netherlands Police

 The Dutch police comprises of an estimated 25 regional police forces as well as the National Police Services Agency (KLPD). The structure of each police region is such that it is headed by a regional police board. The police board normally has mayors and a chief public prosecutor. The head of the National Police Services Agency is the Minister of Interior and Kingdom Relations.

In order to work for the Netherlands Police, individuals must complete the entire application procedure successfully. All candidates must take classes at the Police Academy and complete the training to become qualified professionals working for the Police. Each candidate is tested to determine their suitability for the role of working in the Police department.

 

For each position within the Police department in Netherlands, whether it is a role with uniform or not, there are different minimum requirements with regards to minimum age, qualifications etc. Therefore it is imperative to research and determine the role which you wish to take on within the Police department. The intake is the 15 minute short interview with the employer in the Police. This interview is conducted for the purpose of obtaining a better understanding of the candidates strengths and weaknesses and their desire to work for the government.

When attending this interview, it is advised to conceal any visible piercings, tattoos, jewelry and fancy hairstyles in order to make a strong and professional impression on the interviewer. Police employees are required to observe a professional demeanor at all times.

 

In the event that the candidate passes their intake interview, they are invited to attend the test days as outlined by the Police Academy. The test days are usually split into two days – one full day and one half day.

Test Day 1: this usually incorporates a cognitive ability test and a physical ability test

Test Day 2: it is conducted within 3 weeks of test day 1, and comprises of a physiological interview and practical test with role play.

 

The medical examination is usually a series of questions related to your health in the form of a questionnaire. These questions cover posture, movement, cardiovascular system, mind, senses, psychological symptoms, treatments and medicines. In addition to these questions, candidates will be required to take a blood pressure test, glucose levels, height, weight, eye sight, color testing and visual determination. Lastly, the test has a physical examination to determine the health and abilities of the candidate.
