Are you currently working for a police department as a full-time officer, or have you previously worked full-time for another police department? We’d love to meet you. Lateral transfers should submit an application and we will contact you. Officers who wish to transition from one department to NPD will be interviewed with a small interview panel and if selected, will then move through the background investigation, medical exam, and psychological test. If hired, lateral transfer officers will complete a modified Field Training and Evaluation Program phase based on the officer’s experience, knowledge, and abilities.
