Application Guide

The Colorado Springs Police Department accepts applications for Entry Level and Lateral Police Officer positions through the GovernmentJobs.com website.  Open jobs may be found in the Law Enforcement category.  

Our employment process begins by completing an online application. Testing will be conducted on many occasions during the application process.  In order to have the best selection of test dates, candidates should apply as early as possible in this process.   Once the Department verifies an applicant’s eligibility to apply, applicants will be notified by email on how to proceed with our testing process.
