Becoming a Police Officer…
The Owensboro Police Department now accepts applications on a year round basis for the position of Police Officer. However, we will only review the application during an active hiring process for the position. If we are not actively hiring for the position of Police Officer at the time of application, it will be retained until the next hiring cycle. If you are not selected for employment during a hiring cycle, you must resubmit a new application before being eligible for the next hiring process. It is your responsibility to confirm our receipt of your application by calling Ofc. Michael Hathaway at 270-687-8867, or Jo Hall at 270-687-8878.
