The Position

Police Officers provide a wide variety of law enforcement services to the community. We are actively seeking Police Officers who are committed to the vision of pioneering a new way of policing. Citrus Heights envisions an operation in which the line patrol officers enjoy communicating and building relationships with individuals in the community. We want to take the overused, and often under implemented, concept of "community policing" to the next tier. We envision true community connection and commitment with engaged stakeholders on all sides. In Citrus Heights, all police staff members will have proactive community policing responsibility. In addition, the major thoroughfares coursing through our fully developed community make traffic management a vital duty of all patrol officers. Overall, the department will have strong generalists with opportunities for special assignments, including: patrol, investigations, school resource officers, K9, SWAT and critical-incident teams, and others. Officers have the ability to earn up to an additional 5% as a Detective – retaining the additional pay once the assignment is complete. The probationary period for this position is 18 months.
