The City of Mansfield has decided to postpone the giving of civil service examinations for entry level positions within its Division of Police and Division of Fire. The tests were originally scheduled for April 28, 2012 but now will be given in August 2012. The exact testing date in August will be determined within the next month and once it is established, the City will make it known through a press release and on its website. This change in dates is brought on by the requests of both divisions for the City and its Civil Service Commission to review recent changes in Ohio’s civil service laws and exam ways of establishing better retention levels, savings for the City in training costs and yet maintain racial, gender and ethnic diversity within each division.
