We hire applicants in one of two ways, Entry-Level and Lateral. Entry-level applicants are NOT required to have OPOTA certification and may be hired and sent through Academy training by our agency. Entry-level applicants may also be currently enrolled in, or previously graduated from an open enrollment Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy and are now seeking a commission with a police department. All Entry-Level applicants must complete testing through National Testing Network, send your score to our department, and submit a Brimfield Township Police Department Employment Application to our department. Lateral applicants currently serving as a police officer with another agency are not required to complete online testing through National Testing Network and undergo an expedited process.
When we are hiring, we will review the applicants on file and if selected, you will be contacted to submit a comprehensive follow-up background investigation package. Additional phases of our process include interviews, polygraph, psychological examination, and medical/drug screen.
