Cedar Rapids Police Department Recruiting Certified Law Enforcement Officers

May 11, 2021

The Cedar Rapids Police Department is actively recruiting certified law enforcement officers to join the department.  Known as lateral transfers, a certified law enforcement officer from another agency, including in or out of the state of Iowa, can be hired by the Cedar Rapids Police Department with step pay consistent with the total number of years of service they have earned as a certified peace officer.  

Applicants will need to complete the Civil Service hiring process.  The incentive applies to pay only.  Seniority and vacations, for example, will not be transferred.  However, lateral transfers will not be required to attend a police academy.  Out-of-state applicants will need to pass the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy Certification by Exam within 120 days of hire.   

The Cedar Rapids Police Department, which has achieved full advanced accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, is accepting applications until June 7, 2021. 

If you are interested in joining the Police Department’s mission to actively involve everyone in a team effort to serve, protect, and prevent crime and disorder, as well as provide a safe and secure community in an effective and efficient manner, you are encouraged to apply. Police Officer positions are full-time and offer an opportunity to serve the community. 

With the lateral transfer program, the incoming wage will range from $58,489 - $87,027.
