Baltimore Police

 Opportunities with the Baltimore Police

There is a upcoming upcoming recruitment/testing trip to Cayuga Community College in Auburn, NY on May 14th and 15th that our department is having.  On May 14th we will be offering our civil service test (which is good for two years) at 10 A.M. and our fitness test on May 15th at 9 A.M.  Unlike many departments there is NO fee associated with this test and applicants are NOT required to register…they just need to show up on time with a valid drivers license and be at least 20 years old.  All applicants that pass both portions will be allowed to continue processing and upon successful completion of the application process will be offered full employment with the department.  It is important to note that processing is continuous and faster than most departments.  There is funding for these positions and the spots need to be filled this year.

Why Baltimore Police? While many departments are laying off or not hiring, our department is in the process of hiring over 300 police officers this year and offer the following:

Salary: The starting salary for a Police Officer Trainee is $41,290.
At graduation from the police academy, the salary increases to $42,290.
Regular raises based on years of service are incorporated into the salary scale.  An additional Educational Incentive program is available to applicants with a four-year college degree.  Successful entrance into this program will result in a higher annual salary.


●       Retirement Plan
●       Deferred Compensation Plan
●       Health Plans (Blue Cross/Blue Shield or HMO)
●       Dental/Vision Plans
●       Prescription Coverage
●       12 Vacation & 14 Paid Holidays
●       Paid Court Time
●       Paid Overtime
●       Free Equipment

Personal and Professional Growth: The Baltimore Police Department offers promotional opportunities to members with at least three years of service. Promotion offers you advancement into a supervisory position with new challenges and rewards.

Opportunities for advanced training are provided to members to enhance their growth after graduation from the police academy. Specialized training in firearms, defense tactics, and job-related topics such as basic criminal investigation are offered.

   Having been raised (Seneca and Ontario Counties), educated (Waterloo HS 1997, FLCC 2005), and employed (US Navy in Canandaigua) in the area, I know what type of honest, hard working and moral people make up this region and that is what I told and convinced my commanders to approve this trip to look for future Baltimore Police Officers.  Our department hasn't traveled out of state to recruit in years, and I hope by us traveling to the area shows how much promise we feel the area has when it comes to highly qualified applicants interested in serving within law enforcement and working with/for the public.

   Anything you can do to pass the word on this hiring event would be greatly appreciated, and please feel free to pass out my e-mail and cell/work phone number to anyone and everyone that might be interested.
I am more than willing to talk to anyone that will listen about the department.
