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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Talk about having fun by accomplishing something for the organization.
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
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.
