Test Date Sign-Ups

Testing Dates for the upcoming Police Academy will be posted on October 15th


Due to COVID-19 the Winston-Salem Police Department’s Recruiting Unit is requiring all applicants who are participating in the testing dates to wear a mask.    

All testing dates have limited seating in order to comply with social distancing and safety protocols.  If you cannot make the testing date that you signed up for, you must call or email the Recruiting Unit to re-schedule.  Do NOT just show up.  We cannot accept "walk-ins" for testing dates at this current time, only by signing up or appointment.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
