The Weston Police Commission is moving forward with its plan to hire a 10th patrol officer. Now it just needs someone to administer the written test.

The commission heard from two possible testing agencies at its regular meeting on Tuesday, June 4, but neither was exactly what the commission wanted so it’s still on the lookout.

Weston Police Chief John Troxell told the commission he received 140 applications for a new patrol officer’s position, which was approved in the 2013-14 budget.

The test for a new police officer consists of three parts — a written portion, an oral portion, and a physical agility portion.

Police commissioners will conduct the physical agility portion of the test themselves, but would like an outside agency to conduct the written test.

After each phase of the test, candidates are winnowed down until the commission makes the final hiring decision.

Previous test

The last time the department hired a new officer — in 2011 — the commission used the services of police test administrator Larry Jetmore for the written test. That led to the hiring of Officer Daniel Cascone.

“This time we’re looking for something different,” said Commission Chairman Bill Brady.

He said the department is looking at both experienced, certified officers with law enforcement experience and new, uncertified individuals for the position.

The written tests for certified and uncertified officers are different. In 2011, when Mr. Jetmore administered the written test none of the certified officers who took it passed.

Once the commission has a testing agency in place, it will set a date for the written test and beforehand will conduct the physical agility test.

Applicants who pass the physical agility test will move on to the written test.

The commission heard from two testing agencies at its last meeting. Sean Cassidy of PoliceApp.com of Meriden appeared in person, while the commission spoke over the phone in a conference call with Hiry West of Industrial/Organizational Solutions (I/O Solutions) of Westchester, Ill.

Mr. Cassidy explained that PoliceApp.com handles the entire hiring process, beginning with applications. Because the Police Commission has already handled the application process, the commissioners decided PoliceApp.com did not suit its needs, but would consider the agency again for future tests.

As for I/O Solutions, the commission determined its testing procedures were more complicated than what they have done in the past.

Both Chief Troxell and Commissioner Beth Gralnick are searching for testing agencies. “We’d like to get things done quickly, as soon as possible,” said Mr. Brady.

Of the 140 applicants for the position, 72% were noncertified officers, 9.5% were certified, and 18.5% did not supply a résumé as required by the job listing, so those applicants will not move forward in the testing process.
