  • Baltimore City Police Hiring 2013

    Hello future applicants,
    The Baltimore City Police are looking to hire 300 officers in 2013. We plan on running six academy classes in 2013, about 1 every two months.
    Our minimum requirements are:
    • 20 yrs 9 months to start academy
    • High school diploma or G.E.D
    • U.S Citizen
    • Have a full valid drivers license from any state
    Our starting pay is $43,136 per year. (Plus Benefits)
    We have no residence requirement.
    Academy is 6 months long and non-residential.

    The first step is to take our civil service test. There are several ways to do this.

    We give the test every Tuesday at 601 E. Fayette St Baltimore MD 21202 at 12:30 PM and 6:00 PM. Come dressed in business attire and have your full valid License. DO NOT BRING THE APPLICATION TO THE CIVIL SERVICE TEST. You do not need to make an appointment. Go to our web site bpdrecruit.com to download the study guide and study from. This is the first step you need to do. We will tell you if you pass and when the next agility test is scheduled for. Be prepared to be here about 4 hours.

    We also do a 2-day expedited process that covers the first three steps of the process. They are the written test, agility test, document review and written psychological test. All three steps are not guaranteed. You must pass each step to move on to the next one. If you pass all three steps you will be contacted at a later date to go to a background investigator for further processing. Process takes about 4-6 months. We will run one of these tests at least once a month. If you go to bpdrecruit.com dates for testing will be posted. Below is a run down of what will happen on for the 2-day process.

    On POSTED DATE you will need to be at our head quarters building 601 E. Fayette St Baltimore MD 21202, at 8:00 am, dressed in business attire and have your full valid license with you. Bring a change of work out clothes with you. On that day you will do the written test and prescreen. If you pass that you will move on to the agility test. For info on the agility test go to our web site or bpdrecruit.com. If you pass that you will move on to next day.
    On POSTED DATE you will be back here at 8:00 am. You will need to wear
    Male’s suit and tie
    Female’s business attire.
    You will be here most of the day for that day also. On that day you will do the written psych test and collect your application and documents. You can get the application on line at bpdrecruit.com. With your documents you will need the original and one color copy. Do not double any documents up on one sheet of paper.

    Only thing you will not copy will be
    • High school and college transcripts (they have to be in a sealed envelope from the school) If the school wants they can mail them directly to us.
    • Your driving record. (No on-line verification) need to be current with in 30 days of day you come.
    • Credit report (Full report not just score or summary) need to be current with in 30 days of the day you come. The credit report is not on the list but you will need it. Here is a web site annualcreditreport.com it is through the government.

    Make sure your application is also completed. You will be here until at least 4:00 pm on that day.


    If you need a place to stay here are two hotels we work with.
    The first is Sleep Inn 410-779-6166. Give them the code of LCOPS and tell them why you need the rooms. They are about $80 a night.
    The other one is Holiday Inn express 410-400-8045 also tell them why you need the room. They are about $99 a night.
    Both are next to each other and are with in walking distance to our building.

    If these testing options are not good for you we also offer some Friday testing dates. Following most Friday dates we will have the agility test the following day. Check the testing schedule on bpdrecruit.com for these dates.

    If you have any further questions you can send us an e-mail at bpdrecruit.com. Remember you can’t get hired if you don’t come and test.

              Has BPD done anything to recruit certified officers from another state.. ie.. Florida? Last I saw, there was no incentive and you had to attend the full-boat academy.
              The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.
