If you've ever given thought to becoming a Twin Falls police officer, now is your chance. You could be just $20 away from being the long arm of the law.

The city of Twin Falls announced the open testing on their website.

I should point out that there are some other requirements other than the $20 fee. First of all, if you've smoked marijuana anytime in the last 3 years, maybe police work isn't for you. I hear Willie Nelson may be hiring new road crew, so there's always hope.

You also need to fill out an official Twin Falls city employment application, a signed hold harmless agreement and a drug use disclaimer. They'll also want a copy of your resume and any special training you've received. If you know Chuck Norris, now would be the time to tell that story.

Truthfully, the process of becoming a Twin Falls police officer is a long one that requires a physical test, many other examinations, background tests, polygraph, etc. This isn't being a cop like you see on TV. This is real-world tough law enforcement stuff.

If you're serious about wanting to be a police officer, find $20 and check out the details about what it takes to be one of Twin Falls finest.
