It’s free and open to anyone.

“So it’s kind of an opportunity for people who might be interested in a career in law enforcement to come out and get to meet people, see, see what it’s all about at these different agencies. also just an opportunity to come out and chat with law enforcement who maybe you see around, but don’t get to talk to in a daily basis,” said Bend PD public information officer Sheila Miller.

Bend Police will set up the Oregon Physical Abilities Test (ORPAT), a physical training course which evaluates police officer candidates.
