  • Rehoboth Beach PD Seasonal officer

    Does anyone know what the requirements are to become a seasonal officer with Rehoboth beach PD? Also, what type of training do they have to complete and are they sworn officers?


    Thanks!

    Don't bother telling me, "oh it's her fault too".... I know, I have double standards. Deal with it.

    Its from the Dewey Beach PD website.


    What kind of training do the seasonal police officers receive?

    The State of Delaware requires a minimum of 21 hours of training for a seasonal police officer. Our seasonal officers receive 48 hours of training, including laws of arrest, proper use of force, search and seizure, patrol procedures, report writing, courtroom procedures, etc. They are trained on how to handle the many different incidents that they will encounter during the summer.


    I think Rehoboth goes through 4 weeks. Just a heads up but seasonals in Delaware do not get firearms.

      I respect Rehoboth Beach PD seasonals, however, I think you'll see and experience a lot more as a Dewey Beach PD seasonal. Just my 2 cents...

        It's been a few years, but Dewey was a great experience and know it put me to the front of the line when I got picked up back home in PA full-time. Even though it was unarmed and seasonal, the oral board was impressed with alot of the experience I was able to gain there.

        We did the intial training on weekends in April and May and then a week straight around Memorial Day with Bethany, Rehoboth and a few others I think.

        They may not have all the gadgets and budget of Rehoboth but they really prided themselves on preparing you for that full-time position on a dept if that was your intention.

        Hope the situation is still the same.

          There have been previous threads about the beach positions, so run a search and you'll learn more.

          A lot of agencies in Delaware hire seasonal officers to assist during summer months. It is especially vital in the resort beach communities who have very few full-timers. Rehoboth and Dewey are the best and largest seasonal programs.

          The requirements are pretty basic...high school diploma, 18 years old (19 in Rehoboth), no serious criminal activity, etc. Rehoboth has a written exam, background check, chief interview, and psychological. Dewey does a background investigation and oral board interview.

          State law requires only 21 hours of training, but they do three weekends, which totals around 60 hours. It's nowhere near enough and honestly, most of your learning takes place on the street. You are sworn with full powers of arrest, but unfortunately, are unarmed.

          There is somewhat of a rivalry between the two neighboring towns (which you may discover in other threads). Both offer good learning opportunities, but in my opinion, Dewey offers the best experience.

          Apply to both and see what happens.

          Feel free to PM me with further questions. Good luck.

            when you say unarmed, obviously you mean no sidearm, but does that include no pepperspray and/or any other protection device?

              Seasonals in Delaware are certified to carry OC Spray and an ASP.

                Everything except a firearm. Some agencies allow seasonals to carry TASERs, but not the big three (Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany).

                  The seasonal officers carry expandable straight batons, pepper spray, and handcuffs. Each seasonal is sprayed with pepper spray as part of the training. The use of force training is 12 hours long which includes a test written and practical. This training is very physically demanding and done in a strict military fashion.

                  I teach the use of force class at Rehoboth PD and Dewey PD.
