Veterans

The Lakewood Police Department values the leadership experience and service-minded culture of our Nation’s military.  To honor those values and to attract selected veterans as potential-hires for our police force, Lakewood Police now offers starting lateral-transfer pay for veterans which fall into any one of the below categories.

1. Any Non-Commissioned Officer with a bachelor’s degree plus a minimum of six years of active duty time or 10 years of Reserve/Guard time.

2. Any Law Enforcement AFSC/MOS/NEC Non-Commissioned Officer with a bachelor’s degree and a minimum of six years of active duty service.

3. Any Commissioned or Warrant Officer with a bachelor’s degree and four years of service.

4. Any Law Enforcement AFSC/MOS Commissioned or Warrant Officer with a bachelor’s degree plus two years of service.

This benefit extends only to lateral pay. All veterans must still submit a full application package (which will honor your Veterans Preference points), meet all of Lakewood’s standards and complete the full police academy and field training.
