LONGVIEW POLICE DEPARTMENT

TRUTHFULNESS IN HIRING

POLICE OFFICER

One of the most critically important issues that define the effectiveness of any organization is that community members believe it is credible. Central to that image is the integrity and truthfulness of the Department ʼ s employees, from the newest entrant through top-level managers.

The need for honest, impartial, and accurate representation of facts is nowhere more vital than within a law enforcement agency where success or failure rests with the degree of public support it receives. Public support can quickly erode where there is a lack of credibility in existence within the organization.

The very basis of an individual ʼ s integrity, as perceived by the public, friends, and fellow workers is at stake whenever the truth is not told. The loss of integrity by an individual or group of individuals can quickly spread throughout the Department.

This document serves notice that we will not tolerate lying of any kind by any member of this Department, including applicants. You are therefore advised that all information disclosed is subject to verification by polygraph examination.

ANY omissions, either written or verbal, given by you which proves to be false or misleading will result in you being disqualified from further consideration and/or termination from employment from the Longview Police Department. There is no substitute for the truth.

I HAVE READ AND CONSIDERED THE PRECEDING STATEMENT AND AGREE THAT ALL INFORMATION I SUPPLY DURING THE COURSE OF MY PROCESSING, EITHER WRITTEN OR VERBAL, WILL BE ANSWERED HONESTLY AND TRUTHFULLY.

I AUTHORIZE THE INVESTIGATION OF ALL STATEMENTS, BOTH WRITTEN AND VERBAL, GIVEN DURING THE COURSE OF THIS PROCESS, AS MAY BE NECESSARY IN ARRIVING AT AN EMPLOYMENT DECISION. I UNDERSTAND THAT ALL MATERIALS PERTAINING TO THE HIRING PROCESS BECOME THE PROPERTY OF THE LONGVIEW POLICE DEPARTMENT.

I FURTHER UNDERSTAND IN THE EVENT MY APPLICATION IS DISAPPROVED, THE SOURCES OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION CANNOT BE REVEALED TO ME.
