Police Recruitment

Officer with young peopleJoin the Woodbury Police Department
Woodbury Public Safety is a destination police department in the Twin Cities metro area. As a police officer, you will have the opportunity to effectively navigate your desired career path in a positive workplace culture, while being provided exceptional equipment, a variety of training opportunities, and robust wellness programs. Our police officers actively engage with community members and are well supported by our city leadership, department administration, and the community. Finally, the department encourages progressive thinking and a healthy work life balance across all ranks.

We believe a diverse workforce creates a better spirit of community, shared ideas and increased creativity. As such, we encourage applications from people of color, members of diverse gender identities, physical abilities, and other varied elements of identity and human experience, who may contribute to further diversification of ideas. Strategies to advance workforce equity benefit all employees and the organization as a whole. Open and inclusive employment practices and policies help attract and retain talented staff from all groups and help us respond appropriately to changing needs and goals in the community.
