Become a Member of TPD
The Employee Resources Division is composed of both the Employee Resources Office and the Recruiting Office, located at our headquarters.
Our Recruiting personnel handle all recruitment for Police Officers and Public Safety Communications Officers, administer typing tests, perform preliminary and complete background investigations, schedule polygraph and psychological examinations, and are the people to contact if you are interested in working for the Tallahassee Police Department as a Police Officer or a Public Safety Communications Officer.
Our Employee Resources Office is a "one stop shop" for information for all current employees. We supply information on payroll, retirement, insurance, policies and procedures, hiring, termination, and more. We also provide public records requests, verifications of employment, and basic information to the public. Our office provides the city's job listings concerning civilian positions around the city, as well as accepts applications for temporary, civilian positions within the department.
