  • Seeking General Info on Columbus PD

    I couldn't find a recent thread on this so I thought I would start one.

    Can anyone provide some general info on working for Columbus PD? For instance - retirement, morale, benefits, length of time on patrol before promoting/moving to special assignment, etc?

    Retirement is police and fire at like 12.5% of your pay , 25 years and 52 years old. Benefits are top notch, 100% paid tuition after a year , amazing insurance for low cost , lots of special duty for $$$. You won't see day shift for like 13 or 14 years I believe, swat 25 years , ntac 20 some, k9 20, motorcycle maybe 25, detectives 15 years I think depending. Basically you're on patrol for a while.

        Although I did not make it through their entire process , I can tell you its a great agency. Everyone I met along the way was top notch, very informative and helpful. As with any agency its difficult to get in, well worth it though.

            As of right now it's easily a 23 year to get job. It's all seniority based to get jobs so the fun cool ones take awhile. You'll push a cruiser for 10 years minimum unless you get promoted.

              Maybe I'm misunderstanding this, but you retire after at 12.5% of your base pay? That seems really low right? I thought most police departments (that I'm familiar with) retired you at like 50 to 60% of your pay?

                            What's the timeline look like for promoting up to supervisor and through the supervisor ranks?
