Background  Check

Glendale Police Officers are role models for the community. A background check helps determine if applicants meet the high standards required for the job. Applicants must:

  1. Collect Required Documents

  2. Attend background interview with an investigator

  3. Take a polygraph test

  4. Undergo reference checks

Prior to your appointment to the Glendale Police Department, you are required to undergo and successfully pass a comprehensive background investigation. Part of this investigation includes the review of relevant documents. You must collect these documents before a background interview can be scheduled (college transcripts can be received at a later date).

Find the complete list of required documents here.

Once you have collected all the relevant documents, please call call Sergeant Robert Rosas at:

(818) 548-3117 or your assigned background investigator to schedule an interview appointment.

Note: Please bring all relevant documents (originals & copies) with you to your background interview.
