OPPORTUNITIES AT THE WESTBROOK POLICE DEPARTMENT: Career development opportunities are available through specialty assignments (drug agents, domestic violence investigator, detectives, school resource officers, canine officers, tactical team member, crisis negotiator, motorcycle patrol, bike patrol, and traffic car) and promotional opportunities.  Our training program is progressive, with many opportunities in-house and by attending classes throughout the region.  There is ample opportunity for overtime, with numerous patrol shifts, outside details, and concerts at the newly opened Maine Savings Pavilion.  Outside detail pay rate is $55.00 an hour.

Our department of 43 sworn officers serves and protects a population of roughly 19,000 residents. Adjacent to the City of Portland, our officers handle a steady volume of calls for service and self-initiated activity.  Combined, officers handle nearly 35,000 calls for service annually. We are a community policing oriented department, encouraging officers to be self-motivated and active in the community, and are looking for civic minded candidates with demonstrated initiative and strong communication skills.


SELECTION PROCESS: Resume submission, interview, physical agility test, background investigation, polygraph, psychological exam, and medical exam. We are not looking for perfect candidates…we’re looking for honest candidates who are reasonably physically fit and still have a passion for public service.
