  • Minneapolis Hiring update

    This is directly from a dept wide email:
    Current Academy and Hiring Evolutions

    -Currently we have a recruit class of 12 officers in the academy. They are due to graduate in February.

    -Conditional job offers have been made to 25 CSOs that will start their academy January 5, 2015.

    -We are in final stages of background for the next cadet class. We are planning on hiring 20-30 cadets that will start their academy on March 23. They will hit the street in October.



    Planned Hiring Evolutions

    -Recruits: Applications for our 2015 recruit class will open up next Monday, December 15th. We are planning for an August 2015 academy start. Recruits must be POST eligible by the close of applications on January 30, 2015.

    -CSOs: We are scheduled to open up applications in May for our January 2016 CSO class.

    -Cadets: We are scheduled to open up applications in August for the March 2016 cadet class. To be eligible as a cadet you must possess a 2 or 4 year college degree by the close of applications.



    Please feel free to pass along this information to anyone you know is interested in becoming a CSO or MPD Police Officer or to anyone you think would make a good addition to MPD. Keep in mind the CSO and cadet dates are somewhat tentative at this point, but shouldn’t move around too much.

    We will send out separate reminders emails when applications for each position are open.

    Ouch, 25 CSOs starting. Went through backgrounds and sent in my medical history before getting the rejection letter.

        Not at this time..rumors but the email that I posted just pretty much squished those.

            Being a current Minneapolis Police Reserve I was really looking forward to having the opportunity to apply and be in the 2015 MPD recruit class. I won't be post eligible until April 2015 (Still in Skills). Should I still apply for the recruit class in your opinion?

              Squad51's post said you must be eligible by 1-30-15. You won't be. Why you would apply for a job you don't meet the qualifications for for is beyond me. Knuckle down and concentrate on your studies and keeping your nose clean and apply when you meet the guidelines.

                  Do you all think that MPLS will hire at the same rate they did at the end of 2014 and into 2015?

                  Specifically for the the next cadet number wise?

                    they want classes of 30....as to the question will that continue? Good question..indications are yes it will but if the economy slows down again things could change..if crime heats up suddenly things could change. So your guess is as good as mine.
