Career Recruiting

Welcome to the Hot Springs Police Department's online recruiting center. We are delighted to know that you are interested in pursuing an exciting and rewarding career in law enforcement or that you may be considering continuing your law enforcement career with us after having served with another law enforcement agency or in the military.

We have plans in the near future to incorporate a variety of informative multimedia into our recruiting center to help you better understand the needs of our agency and the expectations and benefits of a career as a law enforcement officer.

We activate testing and application procedures once a year (or more often if deemed necessary to maintain a sufficient hiring list).

If you would like to be notified when a position becomes available or when the police officer testing process is activated you can sign up for job notifications on the Human Resources page.
