Questions Posted to "Ask a Dispatcher"
Q. Hi, I've been interested in a law enforcement career for a long time now. If I were to get accepted to the police academy, would I be paid for time spent there? At what wage? Are travel costs covered? Thank you in advance.
Dear Juneau Resident,
Speaking for JPD, your first step would be to get hired by JPD and then the agency sends you to the academy. People are paid for being at the academy and you would make roughly what you would make working 40 hour weeks back in Juneau. Travel costs are covered as is room and board (bunk).
JPD is hiring now with a written and physical test in Juneau April 30th and May 1st. You can register through publicsafetytesting.com right up until the morning of the 30th prior to testing starting.
