The Tucson Police Department (TPD) is accepting applications for police officer trainees. Once recruited, a trainee attends the police academy to learn skills and practices, assists with performing patrol duties, responds to routine and emergency calls with another officer, and assists with crime prevention.
The training process is 22 weeks long and requires a high level of commitment and time dedication. The deadline to apply is Jan. 20.
Successful candidates from this testing period will be considered for any funded academy classes within the next six months. The earliest academy to be filled from this list will be May 2019.
