[ARCHIVED] Eugene Police Welcomes Seven New Police Officers to its Ranks

Eugene Police Department is proud to announce the swearing-in today of seven new police officers.

The new group ranges in age from 21 to 35, with the average age being 28. Of our new officers, two have served in the military, three have earned college degrees and two are officers from other police agencies (called a lateral hire). Their work experience is varied, but includes employment in the trades, armed security, and recent college graduates.

The process is thorough to become a Eugene Police officer. To become hired, an officer will have gone through a physical abilities test, written test, interview, intensive background, psychological examination and physical examination. Once hired, Eugene Police recruits go through nine weeks of pre-academy training, and then 16 weeks of Basic Police academy training at Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training. After their DPSST training, they undergo an additional 16 weeks of field training before being evaluated for solo status.

Eugene Police has an open hiring process for police officers and the application deadline is by 5 p.m., on Friday, August 7, 2015. The projected hire date is February 2016.

It’s the career choice of a lifetime!
