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, the Lakewood Police Department now offers starting lateral-transfer pay (which is $87,796.80), for veterans which fall into either one of the below categories:

  • Any service member or veteran, E-5 and above, with a bachelor’s degree and five years of active duty service. 

                                                                                 Or

  • Any service member or veteran, E-5 and above, with a bachelor's degree and eight years of reserve/guard service or six years of reserve/guard service in a law enforcement AFSC/MOS/NEC.

 

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.
