SPD is hiring Police officers!

Look for the new SPD recruiting billboards throughout Seattle.

The Seattle Police Department is a good department and we now have an opportunity to make the department better. Part of that process includes ensuring that our officers reflect Seattle’s values and diversity.

We are looking to recruit and hire from a pool of applicants who are well educated, and strong in character and integrity.  The process to become a Seattle police officer is not an easy one. It is rigorous and competitive as we only want the very best for our police force and our city.

If you have what it takes to become a Seattle police officer and are up to the challenge of serving a highly progressive and engaged community, we encourage you to apply.
