Tucson Police Department Recruiting


The Recruiting Division is happy to announce that there is a new Sgt. in charge of recruiting, Sgt Marcel Wade.  Officer Skeenes went to the Downtown Walking Beat but will still be assisting as part of the recruiting team. 




The Tucson Police Department recently participated in the Military Times "Best for Vets" law enforcement employer review for 2014. We are proud to announce that the Tucson Police Department was selected as a "Top Finisher" in their review and analysis of law enforcement agencies that best support military veterans   


Military Times evaluated law enforcement agencies on factors including their efforts to recruit veterans, veteran preference points during hiring, total numbers of veterans on the department, the generosity of pay and benefits provided to deployed reservists, among other factors. The Tucson Police Department, along with only six other agencies, was recognized as a “Top Finisher” among the 19 departments profiled by Military Times. The Tucson Police Department is proud that nearly 31% of our members are veterans.
