Officers coming from other jurisdictions must meet all the minimum requirements for police officer to include testing, interviews and background checks. Upon hiring, their direct experience and training is evaluated and their pay will be reflective to that of a similar officer within our division (per Professional Standards Directive #14-03).
Those who are Basic Law Enforcement Certified through the Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) from an accepted police academy will not be required to complete ours. The field training will then be conducted in a manner that recognizes the officer's standing as experienced and not that of a new recruit.
