Citrus Heights Police LogoThe Position
Working at the Citrus Heights Police Department is all about character. Our reputation and ability to effectively serve is built on the words, actions, and habits of our people. We have deliberately constructed a character-based culture as the foundation of a premier professional police agency.

At CHPD, we have created something out of the ordinary. The Citrus Heights Police Department is the place for you if you seek a destiny of excellence surrounded by professionals of high character. This is our mission. Do you have what it takes? Then join us... at CHPD, it's all about character.

Police Officers provide a wide variety of law enforcement services to the community. We are actively seeking Police Officers who are committed to the vision of pioneering a new way of policing. Citrus Heights envisions an operation in which the line patrol officers enjoy communicating and building relationships with individuals in the community. We want to take the overused, and often under implemented, concept of community policing to the next tier. We envision true community connection and commitment with engaged stakeholders on all sides. Rather than designating certain officers to focus on solving community problems, Citrus Heights will assign all police staff members with proactive community policing responsibility. In addition, the major thoroughfares coursing through our fully developed community make traffic management a vital duty of all patrol officers. Overall, the department will have strong generalists with opportunities for special assignments, including: patrol, investigations, school resource officers, K9, SWAT and special investigations. Officers have the ability to earn up to an additional 5% as a Detective, retaining the additional pay once the assignment is complete. The probationary period for this position is 18 months.

Unique Shift Schedule
The job of a Police Officer assigned to Patrol is demanding. We acknowledge this and want our officers to have a work/life balance. With this in mind, we have strategically incorporated these values into the benefits and work schedule programs outlined below.
*Officers are scheduled 160 hours every four weeks - generally 12-hour shifts.
*50% of officers are off on weekends, and 50% of officers are off on most holidays.
*Mini-Sabbatical -- Annually receive 4 weeks of paid time off in lieu of 160 hours of holiday time.

Ideal Candidate
At CHPD, we have created something new. A place where conviction and character count. A place where the community is truly put first. A place where performance and excellence are rewarded. A place where input and ideas ignite innovation. A place where everyone knows your name.

How do we do this? We do what we say. We accept responsibility and are accountable for our actions good or bad. We listen and learn. We help employees develop and grow, and we provide real constructive feedback. We actively talk with our employees and seek their input and ideas. We don't settle for "we've always done it this way." We empower employees to make independent decisions and proactively solve problems. We partner with the community to build relationships and enhance safety.

You are an ideal candidate if you are seeking a character-based agency and have these attributes:
* Ability to interpret, apply and make decisions based on applicable federal, state and local laws, policies and regulations.
* Experienced in law enforcement programs including patrol, investigations, interrogation and special operations.

* Have a service orientation with an understanding of community-oriented policing.
* Think clearly and act quickly and decisively in emergency situations, while remaining calm.
* Focus work effort to carry out the City's Customer Service philosophy of actively listening, addressing customer concerns, and providing services at a level that exceeds customer expectations.
