The first step in the hiring process is completion of the application, and submission of a resume and cover letter.
After review of application and resume/cover letter, you will be contacted by a representative from the department to register for a written and physical fitness test. Both the written and fitness tests are administered, free of charge, at Portland Police Dept. Headquarters at 109 Middle Street, Portland, Maine.
Feel free to contact us regarding any questions you may have. The Police Administrative Offices can be reached at (207) 874-8596 or (207) 874-8588.
NOTE: The same Physical Fitness Testing is also available at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy. You must pre-register and pay the registration fee to schedule at MCJA. Contact Jim Birt at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy at 207-877-8020 or the central office at 207-877-8000.
