The CDCR Office of Peace Officer Selection (OPOS) announced today a pause in accepting Correctional Officer job applications. OPOS has received over 10,000 applications since May 2.
OPOS is closing the application process again to avoid the large glut of applicants that at one point created a delay of up to six months in scheduling for the written exam. OPOS’ goal is to have applicants scheduled to take the written exam within 30-60 days of application and to reduce the overall time applicants spend in the process by 120 days. A future update will announce the reopening of the application process.
