I talked with an officer from SLCPD tonight and he told me that SLCPD is doing an academy in January for non certified new hires. He told me that the department is doing interviews right now and that I just missed the sign up. Is any of that true?

The interviews were for the lateral hire that closed on Sept 23rd. We do have classes of both laterals and new hires that will be starting in January. The new hire class is almost done with their testing to determine the hire list. We will be opening up a new hire process in the spring. Make sure you go to our website SLCPD.com/joinourteam and put your information in to receive updates when we open for hiring again.

Ok. For the class in January that has new hires involved, did the new hires for that class apply in August during the lateral recruitment? If not when did they apply to get the class date in January?

The new hires starting in January had submitted their applications for the May 2017 hiring process. It generally takes us about 6 months to complete all the testing procedures for our new hire classes.

Don't be discouraged about the time it takes. Once you are hired, it is all worth it. Being a Police Officer is the best job ever!

Will the new hire process that will take place in the spring of 2018 be for laterals as well?

We usually hire both laterals and new hires in the spring, but not generally at the same time. There has not been a decision about when this will happen yet.

Ok, thanks for the quick response. Is there a recruitment team email that I could send some specific questions that I have about the department to? Or telephone number that I could call to speak with a recruiter?
