Friday Job of the Day - Entry Level Police Officer
City of Madison Police Dept
The Madison Police Department is nationally recognized for innovation and leadership. The Department is in the forefront of trust-based community policing, problem solving and quality improvement. We are an organization "where individuals CAN and DO make a difference." The Department wants to attract and retain men and women who reflect the diversity of our community. While Wisconsin Law requires us to accept applications from those over 18 years of age, successful applicants usually have educational and/or life experiences possessed by mature individuals. New training classes commonly include a number of individuals who are changing careers. The profile of a "typical" candidate hired by MPD is someone who has at least an associate?s degree (60 college credits) and most have a bachelor's degree. Age range is from 22-45, but we have no upper age limit. Previous experience may include work in teaching, social work, business, law enforcement or a variety of other professions. We are by no means a "one size fits all" employer . . . we value the diversity of all academic, work and life experience(s). We want to recruit applicants who can communicate effectively, both verbally and in writing. We need individuals who can enforce the law while protecting the constitutional rights of all. The Madison Police Department seeks committed individuals who want to work with a multi-cultural citizenry in improving our quality of life. Laterals? The Madison Police Department is considering the possibility of having an ?accelerated? academy exclusively for veteran police officers (i.e., three or more years of continuous and full-time law enforcement experience in patrol). Under this pilot program (contingent on the number of qualified candidates who express an interest and funding considerations), a veteran police officer would attend our Academy (taught in-house by MPD Training Staff, non-residential, Monday-Friday, 8a-4p, pay and benefits provided) for only 10 weeks prior to participation in a condensed field training program before moving seamlessly to a position in Patrol Services. No law enforcement experience? We are also accepting applications now for a hire date in the Fall of 2013. No prior law enforcement experience is needed.
