Fast Track Opportunity
Fast Track is offered for candidates with limited legal and medical histories who are willing to accept assignment to one of the department’s priority prisons. In exchange, these candidates have an expedited background investigation and may be eligible for hire 4-5 months after beginning the hiring process.
This program is offered to candidates after successful completion of the Physical Fitness Test (PFT). Available locations may vary depending on current departmental hiring needs. A current list of priority institutions will be provided after each PFT.
