|Police Recruiting Ongoing|
The Covina Police Department seeks men and women who understand, possess, and practice the traits Honor, Integrity and Service, and who have a strong desire for a law enforcement career. We are currently accepting applications for Public Safety Dispatcher, Police Officer Recruit and Lateral Police Officer. Testing for all positions will take place as needed. The law enforcement hiring process is lengthy, arduous, and unlike any process in the private sector. Often, persons whose personal history eliminate them as Covina Police Department candidates needlessly apply. The background process is stringent and often underestimated by police department applicants. Our goal is to provide information to persons interested in a law enforcement career, and to answer questions in order to ensure persons are fully informed before making the decision to apply. Carefully review all available information under the [Join Our Team] section of this website before submitting an application. Only serious applicants who are already physically and mentally prepared to conquer the demands of a six month police academy should apply for the Recruit position.
Updated Alarm Ordinance
The City of Covina has recently adopted an updated Alarm ordinance to address the actions of irresponsible alarm owners and irresponsible alarm monitoring companies. The goal of the ordinance is to reduce the number of false alarm activations requiring a response by the Covina Police Department, which will free up police resources and reduce the fines levied on alarm customers.
