Commerce City looking to hire police, staff


Commerce City is looking for as many as 30 new police officers and 11 police staffers in a new campaign.

The Commerce City Police Department (CCPD) is launching a national employment campaign to attract the next generation of police officers to their team. This includes cadets for the next police academy and experienced lateral police officers.

The deadline for cadets is July 10 but applications for other positions, including laterally transferring trained officers that would move from other departments, are accepted year-round.

Cadets earn $23 hourly and $66,900 upon graduation. Laterals transfers can earn up to $97,200 annually and applications are accepted year-round for full benefits and overtime.

The department is looking for a diverse pool of qualified candidates working for positive change who seek day-to-day action in their job to help others, along with opportunities for career advancement.

“We are looking for people who want to advance their career in law enforcement, who are change-makers and proactive peace-makers, and who want to make a positive difference in the lives of others,” said Travis Fender, Sergeant, Training and Recruiting for the Commerce City Police Department.
