Police Employment Opportunities

The Green Township Police Department accepts applications for employment on an ongoing basis.  In order to be eligible for employment, applicants must be at least 21 years of age at the time of appointment and be eligible to obtain and maintain OPOTA peace officer certification.

The first step to apply for a police officer position is to take the written test. The department uses National Testing Network to conduct the written test for police officer positions, see their page for instructions for taking the test and submitting test scores to Green Township. After submitting test scores from National Testing Network, applicants should also submit a GTPD Police Officer Employment Application.

Certified officers with at least 12 months of full-time law enforcement experience are not required to take the written test and should submit an application directly to the department.

Applications are available at the link above and can also be picked up in person from 8am to 4pm Monday through Friday at the police department. Once completed, applications can be emailed to police@greentwp.org, mailed, or dropped off in person.

Additional steps in the hiring process will include interviews, a thorough background investigation, a truth verification test, and medical and psychological evaluations.  We do not conduct a physical agility test, however applicants must be able to meet all requirements to obtain OPOTA certification.
