Police recruit selection for the El Paso Police Academy is a process which normally takes up to six months. The process includes a written exam, physical agility test, a background investigation, polygraph, an oral board interview, and medical and psychological exams. Once selected, the Police Academy lasts for seven months and the recruits are introduced to the Texas Penal Code, Code of Criminal Procedure, and department policies and procedures. The recruits are also put through various physical fitness regiments, defensive tactics, and firearms proficiency classes.
