§                     Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) officers have access to sensitive, protected information, and hold positions accountable for protecting the safety of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community.

§                     CMPD conducts a thorough evaluation of potential officers. A psychological evaluation is a required component of the officer selection process to assist in assessing the capacity of recruits to handle the comprehensive responsibilities of police officers.

§                     In addition to the recruitment purposes, CMPD requires employees who exhibit behaviors inconsistent with expectations to undergo a fit-for-duty evaluation in certain circumstances.
