Hiring Equality:

It is the policy of the City of Thomasville to provide equal opportunity for all persons and to prohibit discrimination in employment because of race, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age or sexual orientation.

Law enforcement is a challenging and rewarding career. Courage, dedication, initiative and compassion are just a few of the traits necessary for this profession. The most important characteristic, however, is honesty. Citizens have entrusted  their safety and well-being to the care of Police Officers. It is because of this trust that citizens demand the highest standards are maintained by each Police Officer. When a Police Officer is sworn in, he or she promises to protect that trust by upholding the law and diligently serving the people of the community.

This is not a career for everyone, nor is it one to be entered into lightly.

Do you feel you have what it takes to wear a badge of trust?
Are you ready to meet the challenge of a highly professional and dedicated Police Department?

If so, then we would like to offer you an opportunity to grow with the Thomasville Police Department.
