The University of Toledo Police Department is looking to add new officers to its force.

Candidates must be at least 21 years old with a valid driver’s license, meet minimum standards of physical fitness, and have a valid Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy certificate or be currently enrolled in a certified police academy.

In addition, candidates must submit to a drug test, have completed 96 quarter hours or 64 semester hours of college credits, or have at least five years of continuous active full-time law enforcement experience.

“We are looking to hire individuals with strong character, judgment and commitment to safety to fill vacancies resulting from upcoming retirements,” UT Police Chief Jeff Newton said. “University policing is a dynamic career, and we’re looking forward to finding the right individuals for this opportunity.”

Written police exams and physical fitness tests will be held Saturday, April 26, and interested candidates are asked to submit an electronic application by Wednesday, April 16, at jobs.utoledo.edu. Click here for a direct link to the officer job posting.

Candidates who meet minimum qualifications will be contacted with testing information.

Finalists must pass physical fitness, psychological and polygraph exams as well as written and oral testing and a thorough background investigation to be considered for the position.
