Testing Process

What are the differences between withdrawing from the process and being eliminated from the process?

Withdrawing from the selection process is by candidate choice and is requested by submitting a Request to Withdraw form  to CustomerService.OPOS@cdcr.ca.gov. If a candidate becomes interested in applying for the same Correctional Peace Officer classification at a later date, a new application must be submitted.

Elimination during the testing process may occur for any number of reasons varying from missing a testing date to a disqualification after a failed examination. Elimination is not by candidate choice. If eliminated, candidates must currently wait six (6) months, before they are eligible to reapply for the same Correctional Peace Officer classification.
