getbadged for Candidates

The getbadged process eliminates the need for any department-held entry exams by simplifying the application & hiring process necessary to quickly & efficiently secure a job in law enforcement.

Ready to getbadged? It's as easy as 1, 2 3:

  1. Create your Account: Create a getbadged account for FREE to fill out your Candidate Profile & upload your supporting documents.
  2. Take the Exam: Register & take your entry exam through PES/getbadged.
  3. Get Hired: Check out our complete list of job opportunities. As soon as your exam score is posted to your getbadged account, it will be visible to departments when you apply to jobs.

Entry Level & Academy Trained jobs require a passing exam score. Register & pass your exam with getbadged & any departments you apply to within your (6) month getbadged membership period will be provided with your exam score, confirming for our departments that you have met their exam requirement. Police Dispatcher & Cert Officers/Lat Transfer jobs do not require an exam score.
