Even back in 2007, it wasn't a cakewalk getting hired. With the feds, Border Patrol is hiring. My agency, the BOP, is always hiring as well. US Capitol Police is hiring.

    Just don't give up.
    I'm sure it has never been a cakewalk to get any LE jobs but at least a while back there were jobs to apply for! Now it's all hiring freeze city!

      Haha ringo!

      Right after 9/11 was the perfect time to get hired for these jobs. I know NCIS agents with only a bachelors degree and NO other experience who were hired immediately after 9/11 because they needed people.

      Anyway I'm not giving up! The past several years I have spent making myself more competitive by getting a masters, learning Mandarin, living in China... as soon as I see jobs open to apply to, I am going to apply (within reason - there are agencies I don't want to work for, ex. border patrol).

          LVMPD Police Recruit Hiring Online Interest Cards

          Dear SoCalguy09:

          Thank you for your post.

          You may submit an online interest card for Police Recruit at www.lvmpd.com after December 7, 2010.

          You may submit an online interest card for Correction Recruit at anytime now; however, there is no information about the next Corrections academy this year or for 2011. Things rapidly change on the department from day to day, so I would encourage you to complete an interest card for Correction Recruit ASAP. You may want to also consider putting in an online interest card for Police Recruit when the time comes to keep as many options open.

          In doing this you will be notified when we will start accepting online applications. No POST waiver is required as you will be required to attend our academy to include field training. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has implemented a mandatory seminar for Police Recruit that is conducted by the Recruitment Team prior to a candidate being allowed to continue in the testing process. After you submit your application, you will be given an opportunity to select three seminar dates that work the best with your particular schedule.

          There is no age requirement other than a minimum of 21 years of age. Below is additional information you might find useful.

          It is highly recommended that if you want to apply for the position, you do so as soon as the position posts. You should also monitor www.lvmpd.com on a regular basis to keep up with any position updates. All of LVMPD positions are in high demand and receive a large volume of applications, Due to this, the position posting has been closed earlier than what is stated on the job announcement.

          All Police Recruits testing and hiring process is the same, no exceptions. Police Recruits while attending LVMPD Police Academy receive a starting annual salary of $49,171.00, with full benefits. That salary increases quickly toward the $100,000.00 mark as your career progresses. This is not a non-realistic number, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department pays 100% of your retirement unlike many of our larger city competing agencies. The cost of living in Las Vegas is drastically lower than other large, metropolitan cities as well.

          In terms of reputation, LVMPD is continuously recognized as the #1 premier western law enforcement agency bar none.

          LVMPD does not have a Lateral Transfer Program for any position.

          Below is a checklist to guide you through the process for Police Recruit. The checklist is in the order that you would begin navigating towards achieving your career goals.
