Beautiful tree-lined streets, diverse residential neighborhoods, outstanding educational opportunities, a robust business environment, a charming historic downtown and a strong sense of community make McKinney truly stand out.

As one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, residents, businesses and visitors show that they strongly embrace the community's vision and strong overall quality of life. 

Just 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, McKinney is a picturesque city with a small-town feel that is quite different from the Metroplex's urban sprawl. Our friendly charm, green spaces and comfortable pace belie the fact that McKinney, with a population of 180,000, is one of the fastest-growing cities in America. 

The nation continues to recognize McKinney as a stand-out community. Money Magazine ranked McKinney the #1 Best Place to Live in America in 2014. Factors considered included employment, schools, crime and safety, as well as overall quality of life aspects including a feeling of community pride. This adds to the accolades the city has already received.

While many factors combine to make McKinney a truly special place in America, it is the people in McKinney who bring these vibrant qualities to life. That community spirit is evident in a friendly, safe and inviting city that holds strong ties to its roots and history while enjoying rapid economic development and continually adding new amenities that compliment and expand our unique quality of life. 

This is McKinney, Texas, and we are Unique by nature.

You must sprint 300 meters - about 3/4 of a lap around the track - for this event. Event #2 - Maximum Push-up Test Push-ups measure the endurance of your upper body muscles including your shoulders, chest and the back of your upper arms. This test measures your ability to use force involving a pushing motion. The test ends when you can no longer continue due to muscle fatigue. You assume a push-up position with your feet together or up to twelve inches apart. Your hands are placed approximately shoulder-width apart with fingers facing forward.

A proper push-up is when you lower your body, touch the block with your sternum, then return to your starting position with elbows in a soft lock. Resting position is up, and proper form is closely monitored. Event #3 - Vertical Jump The vertical jump measures the difference between your standing reach and your jumping reach. This event relates to the explosive power that is needed in operational or pursuit tasks that require jumping and vaulting. With the use of theVertecJump Apparatus, the instructor measures your standing reach, then you may choose from two stances to gain explosive power: feet parallel with one jump up, or feet apart and then gather and jump. You will jump three times reaching as high as possible. The instructor records the highest jump. If you achieve a jump measurement of 24 inches or more, no more jumps are required. Event #4 - One-Minute Sit-ups Sit-ups measure your abdominal muscle endurance, which relates to your ability to perform tasks that involve force. Performance sit-ups are not crunches. You lie on your back with knees bent and hands cupped behind your ears or interlocked behind your head. Your elbows must touch the top of your thigh or knee. An instructor holds your feet down during the test. You complete as many sit-ups as possible in one minute. Resting position is up, and proper form is closely monitored. Event #5 - 1.5-mile Run The 1.5-mile run measures your cardiovascular endurance. This relates to your ability to perform sustained activities such as a long foot pursuit followed by a physical confrontation. The test is conducted on a 440-yard track. One lap equals one-quarter mile and six laps equals 1.5 miles. Following the Exam: After a background investigator reviews the applicant's personal history, the applicant will go through the following steps below. The order is determined by needs and schedules. Applicants will only move to the next step after successful completion of the previous step.

You must sprint 300 meters - about 3/4 of a lap around the track - for this event. Event #2 - Maximum Push-up Test Push-ups measure the endurance of your upper body muscles including your shoulders, chest and the back of your upper arms. This test measures your ability to use force involving a pushing motion. The test ends when you can no longer continue due to muscle fatigue. You assume a push-up position with your feet together or up to twelve inches apart. Your hands are placed approximately shoulder-width apart with fingers facing forward. An instructor places a three inch push-up block beneath your sternum. A proper push-up is when you lower your body, touch the block with your sternum, then return to your starting position with elbows in a soft lock. Resting position is up, and proper form is closely monitored. Event #3 - Vertical Jump The vertical jump measures the difference between your standing reach and your jumping reach. This event relates to the explosive power that is needed in operational or pursuit tasks that require jumping and vaulting. With the use of theVertecJump Apparatus, the instructor measures your standing reach, then you may choose from two stances to gain explosive power: feet parallel with one jump up, or feet apart and then gather and jump. You will jump three times reaching as high as possible. The instructor records the highest jump. If you achieve a jump measurement of 24 inches or more, no more jumps are required. Event #4 - One-Minute Sit-ups Sit-ups measure your abdominal muscle endurance, which relates to your ability to perform tasks that involve force. Performance sit-ups are not crunches. You lie on your back with knees bent and hands cupped behind your ears or interlocked behind your head. Your elbows must touch the top of your thigh or knee. An instructor holds your feet down during the test. You complete as many sit-ups as possible in one minute. Resting position is up, and proper form is closely monitored. Event #5 - 1.5-mile Run The 1.5-mile run measures your cardiovascular endurance. This relates to your ability to perform sustained activities such as a long foot pursuit followed by a physical confrontation. The test is conducted on a 440-yard track. One lap equals one-quarter mile and six laps equals 1.5 miles. Following the Exam: After a background investigator reviews the applicant's personal history, the applicant will go through the following steps below. The order is determined by needs and schedules. Applicants will only move to the next step after successful completion of the previous step. Preliminary interview Thorough background investigation Oral review board Interview with the Chief Conditional job offer Polygraph Psychological examination Medical examination The hiring process for candidates that complete all portions of the pre-employment screenings may take 3-6 months.
