  • CPD hiring desk civilians?

    I heard a few months ago the CPD was supposed to move cops with desk duties to the streets and they were looking to hire civilians. Does anyone know when or if that is still happening?

    Yes, they were hiring retired coppers and civilians to work at call back (the non emergency, 311 center) but applications are closed already.

      He's talking about the old "Police Aide" positions not 311. They closed out that hiring and instead are hiring Police Communications Operator 1 for OEMC.

      Yes, they are supposedly bringing the "Police Aide" back. They had a listing up a few months ago and it's been closed.

      If hired they would do what the officers at the front desk so now (sheduling, call taking, misc paper work). Supposedly they are going to have 1 officer and the Desk SGT. at the front and the rest civilian.

          If you want to be a secretary sure.

          Detention Aides have a lot more fun. More to do and you deal directly with arrestees. More or less corrections work in a small facility. Work directly with the PO's.

          Even though it's called detention aide, they don't "aide" anyone. They do the work.

                        I applied for the admin clerk and the alternate response operator jobs awhile back. Then hr said they're not hiring for the alt operator, so I wonder if they'll scrap the clerk job too.

                          They are two separate things.

                          Alternate response Operators work for 311 and fall under OEMC.

                          The Police Administrative Clerk works for CPD in the district's. They work the front desks in the district's.
                          This position existed in the past , they were titles Police Aides.

                          They did the SAME thing with detention Aides, but it didn't work out how they expected.

                            I think they are going to hire retired POs to do those jobs. I can't see them hiring civilians and non sworn members to do those positions. Writing police reports, etc should be left to the police IMO.
