1. What motivates you as Highway Police Officer?

I've always been motivated by the challenge - in my last role, I was responsible for training our new recruits in firearm care, and wouldn't stop teaching until each recruit passed the course. I know that this job is very fast-paced and I'm more than up for the challenge. In fact, I thrive on it.

2. Why did you choose the police career?

Take a review on the following example: "There are fewer and fewer people in the world ready themselves to fight evil for the sake of the society, which should be a work of honor and conscience. I would like to do something like that, something like a lawman can do to protect the security and safety of the society." Remember do not sound too much hyped-up when speaking like this.

And why the Police? But not others like a politician? You can answer this like Police is your career choice because people need protection from evils and crimes in the world and you urge for the safety and security of the society in a direct and positive manner.

3. What did you like least about your last job as Highway Police Officer?

There was nothing about my last job that I hated, but I guess there were some things I liked less than others. My previous role involved traveling at least twice a month. While I do love to travel, twice a month was a little exhausting - I didn't like spending quite so much time out of the department. I'm happy to see that this role involves a lot less travel.

4. Tell us do you have a criminal record?

A police with a criminal record is just a dream or a wish of a day-dreamer. But it does not mean that the criminals give up trying, so that this question will always be the basic in any police interviews. It is the easy question with any applicants who have no criminal record.

5. When were you most satisfied in your job as Highway Police Officer?

I'm a people person. I was always happiest - and most satisfied - when I was interacting with community residents, making sure I was able to meet their needs and giving them the best possible comfort in a tough situation. It was my favorite part of the job, and it showed. Part of the reason I'm interested in this job is that I know I'd have even more interaction with the public, on an even more critical level.

6. Can you please explain your management style?

Try to avoid labels. Some of the more common labels, like progressive, salesman or consensus, can have several meanings or descriptions depending on which management expert you listen to. The situational style is safe, because it says you will manage according to the situation, instead of one size fits all.

7. How do you explain your gap in employment as Highway Police Officer?

My work is important to me, so I won't be satisfied with any old job. Instead of rushing to accept the first thing that comes my way, I'm taking my time and being selective to make sure my next position is the right one.

8. Tell me about the most fun you have had on your job?

Talk about having fun by accomplishing something for the organization.

9. Tell us about a situation or situations that might demonstrate your confidence to do this job?

Does the job seeker appear to be able to deal with all the diverse situations he/she will meet in your organization? Do they appear to be able to handle issues in a calm and confident manner

10. Please tell me are you a team player?

You are, of course, a team player. Be sure to have examples ready. Specifics that show you often perform for the good of the team rather than for yourself are good evidence of your team attitude. Do not brag, just say it in a matter-of-fact tone. This is a key point.
