This Is All It Takes To Pass The NYPD's Recruitment Test

•, Abby Rogers
 They're allowed to carry guns and are tasked with protecting one of the biggest, most famous cities in the world.

So, you'd think any police officer hopefuls would have to jump through hoops to work for the famed NYPD.

As it turns out, it's pretty easy — at least in the beginning.

I arrived at 2 Lafayette St. at 9:30 a.m. today and after a quick trip through the metal detector, I was ushered up to the 17th floor. They didn't check IDs.

Now, once I got to the testing center, there was a fair bit of red tape to wiggle through.

I had to get a card identifying myself as a police department hopeful from one clerk, then go to a separate room to acknowledge I was indeed here for the NYPD recruitment test, and pay $35 for it.

Then I ventured back to the same clerk to have a receipt signed before being led into a third room to fill out a seating card and be fingerprinted.
