The Lewiston Police Department is hiring entry level Police Officers.
The Lewiston Police Department is located in Lewiston, Idaho. Lewiston is part of a trio of cities referred to as the gateway to Hells Canyon, North America’s deepest river gorge. Recreational opportunities for jet boating, white-water rafting, swimming, fishing, hunting, hiking and camping are limitless. The City of Lewiston has its own municipal airport. We have miles of levee pathways that follow the rivers for walking, jogging and biking. The area is often referred to as the “Banana Belt” of the Pacific Northwest due to the mild winter climate. Snow skiing and snowmobiling are only a short drive away. The City of Spokane, Washington is less than 2 hours away.
Patrol Officers work a 4 day/10 hour shift with a total of 46 sworn officers in the Department. The beginning salary is $54,952.00, plus benefits, i.e. medical, dental, vision, short-term disability, and retirement plan. After a one year probationary period, Officers are eligible to apply for specialty assignments as they come open, such as Detectives, School Resource Officer, Motor Officer, CRT team, Major Collision Investigation Team, and others.
Applicants hired by the Lewiston Police Department will be required to attend the 10 week Idaho POST Basic Academy in Meridian, ID. The Lewiston Police Department requires successful completion of a 16-week comprehensive on-the-job training Field Training program after the Basic Academy.
