The City of Wenatchee’s Civil Service Commission is responsible for establishing and administering the City’s civil service rules. These rules govern the processes for personnel testing, hiring, promotions, discipline and employment status, as well as records maintenance. These rules apply to City employee positions governed by the Commission, primarily the Police and Fire Departments.
The Wenatchee Police Department utilizes Public Safety Testing to perform entry-level candidate testing. They can be reached at www.publicsafetytesting.com. This testing process, combined with a follow-up civil service testing process, is used to establish eligibility lists for hiring. Note: This process has been temporarily discontinued until open positions are available.

- Must be 21 years of age
