Medical Exam

Bakersfield Police Department

The medical exam


You will need to perform a comprehensive medical examination during an appointment with a department-assigned physician as one of the final details to cover prior to your employment. You’ll need to fill out paperwork that includes basic biological descriptors, medical history, identified risk factors, and family history. You will be weighed and have your height measured, have your blood pressure and temperature taken, and provide laboratory blood samples for a general health assessment. Additionally, you will undergo a thorough hearing test, and vision test, to determine your baseline values.


The Bakersfield Police Department partners with our community to protect the lives and property of the people we serve.
