The Mitchellville Police Department has an opening for a full-time police officer. The successful candidate must meet all applicable standards set forth by the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy.
Mitchellville is a community of approximately 2500 persons in Polk County, Iowa. The police department consists of three full-time, four part-time, and eight reserve officers. The salary for this position is graduated through the training process. Certified officers will start at $27.30 per hour, and non-certified officers will achieve this pay rate upon completion of ILEA and field training.
This position will be primarily 10-hour evening shifts with a four-day weekend every other week. Community growth is anticipated to drive department expansion within the next year, and it is anticipated we will be moving to a 12-hour shift with three-day weekends every other week.
The hiring process will involve a physical agility test here locally in October, with POST and MMPI-II testing at the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy on a Tuesday in November. We look to have our selected candidate start in early January.
