If you are interested in starting a career in law enforcement the first step is to fill out an application so the department can keep a fresh pool of applicants in the event that they have an opening.

You must be 18 years of age or older for non-sworn positions and 21 years old for sworn positions.  You must have a high school diploma or equivalent with a clean criminal and driving record.
