The Edgewater Police Department is aggressively seeking highly qualified and motivated individuals for the position of Police Officer. The Department provides high-visibility police services with a strong emphasis on pro-active enforcement to a community on the western border of the City of Denver and Sloan’s Lake. The City of Edgewater has a diverse population of about 5,100 that is experiencing significant transition and redevelopment due to its proximity to Denver while at the same time the city retains the charm and attraction of a smaller, close knit community.
Deadline: November 22nd for first review of applications
The Edgewater Police Department is committed to continuing to build a strong and proud professional image. Specialized training and in-service training are encouraged for every member of the Department. Our officers are enthusiastic and look forward to working as a team to face the challenges of continuing to provide professional police service to the community.
We are a small organization where you can be known and respected as an individual, but still be a member of a professional team. Given our central location in the metropolitan Denver area, you can expect to be challenged by a relatively high volume of calls for service that reflect a wide variety of activities and demand the ability to work at a fast pace and multi-task effectively.
