For the first time in over 13 years, the MNPD will be offering a lateral class.
The class is scheduled to begin May 1, 2020 and will last approximately 13 weeks (½ the normal police officer training class time). The deadline to apply is March 9th.
Our benefit package is one of the best in the country! Salary will begin at $49,836.02 with educational incentives of 3% for an associate's degree and 6% for a bachelor's degree.
- a minimum of (2) two years of uninterrupted, full-time, certified law enforcement experience.
- certification as a law enforcement officer through a State Police Standards and Training Commission or equivalent.
Physical fitness portions of the academy will be proportionate to the academy training time allotted. Graduation standard for the lateral class is 25 sit-ups in 1 minute, 27 push-ups, 70 second 300 meter run and 1.5 mile run in 15:52. The stress inoculation portions of the academy will not be a focus as lateral trainees have already successfully completed or been exposed to similar training. Lateral officers will have 2 six-week rotations with Field Training Officers unless more time is needed.
