Recruitment FAQ's

1) Do I have to submit my transcripts again if I submitted them in the past? Where do I submit my official transcript and/or DD-214?

2. Does the city offer any education waivers? Yes!

3. I do not currently have any credits but would still like the opportunity to apply. Can I request a civil service waiver now?

4. Does the City of Pittsburgh accept lateral transfers or provide additional compensation for veteran officers?

5. Does the City offer alternate testing dates to those who are unable to test on the scheduled dates due to military obligations?

6. I completed both the written and oral exams during the previous recruiting period. Are my test scores from those pervious exams still relevant, or am I required to apply and test again?

NOTE: You are required to apply and test again as scores from previous lists are only valid during the duration of the specific list.
