Physical Agility Tests (PAT) have been scheduled for anyone interested in applying for Natural Resources Police officer positions that are across West Virginia, according to Col. Jerry Jenkins of the Law Enforcement Section of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.

All candidates are required to pass a physical agility testing. Applicants should report to the lobby of the South Charleston Community Center at 601 Jefferson Street either Friday, March 18, at 9 a.m., or Saturday, March 19, at 9 a.m. Walk-ons will be accepted. Applicants will also be required to take a written exam administered by the West Virginia Division of Personnel  at the West Virginia State Police Academy following the PAT. Applicants who pass both the PAT and the WVDOP exam will be invited to an interview March 23-24, times and location to be announced.

Officers are responsible for the prompt, orderly and effective enforcement of all laws and rules of the state and have full law enforcement authority statewide.
