NEEDS TO BE NOTARIZED
Police Operations includes three divisions, each headed by a Captain:
Each officer is regularly assigned to a specific section/shift; however, from time to time, an officer may be transferred from one to another or from one division to another.
All newly hired police offers serve a probationary period of one year, during which time they may be discharged by the Police Chief. Upon satisfactory completion of the probationary period, a police officer has achieved permanent status and is then governed by the City of Hot Springs Civil Service Commission.
All new hires are classified as Police Officer. Promotional guidelines are outlined by the department's promotion system.
During an officer's first year of employment, he/she will be required to attend the Police Training Academy. This training generally extends for a 12-week period; your regular pay from the City is continued while you are attending training. Officers who are certified through another state may only be required to attend a refresher course. These cases are reviewed on an individual basis.
In addition to the minimum requirements and physical and psychological standards, the Hot Springs Police Department has established guidelines regarding elements of an applicant’s personal history that, if present, could cause an applicant to be eliminated from consideration.
