Position Details

Are you looking for a progressive, non-traditional, community policing focused department! We want to recruit applicants who can communicate effectively, both verbally and in writing. We need individuals who can enforce the law while protecting the constitutional rights of all. 

We are currently taking applications now for two different academies:

  • No Experience - For those without law enforcement experience, our full academy is scheduled to begin in late May, 2025.
  • Lateral - For those who are already working in law enforcement, we will be offering an accelerated academy in late November, 2024. 

Laterals/Accelerated Academy:

The Madison Police Department is currently recruiting for an “accelerated” academy exclusively for veteran police officers (i.e., officers with three or more years of continuous and full-time law enforcement experience in patrol).

As a veteran police officer you would attend our accelerated Academy, (taught in-house by MPD Training Staff, non-residential, Monday-Friday, 8a-4p, with full pay and benefits provided) following the academy you would participate in a condensed field training program before moving seamlessly to a position in Patrol Services.

Those that apply early could have a tentative job offer as early as July 2024!
