Applicants must be currently certified through the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Education (TCLEOSE) as a peace officer and be in good standing.

Interested applicants should come by Tioga City Hall (600 Main Street) in order to pick up a Personal History Statement Packet (or print off one electronically using the link below) and are encouraged to submit a resume and a letter of interest.  Applications must be filled out completely.  Any omission or incomplete application will not be considered.  Applicants will be subjected to a complete background investigation and may be required to take a polygraph examination and participate in an Oral Review Board prior to selection.  If any additional examination (I.E. physical, drug screen and psychological) is deemed necessary, it will be at the applicant’s expense.
