Certified Police Officer

The City of Oakwood, Georgia, is accepting applications from Georgia Certified Police Officers to fill one open position.  Oakwood offers competitive salary with an exceptional benefits package, and some consideration will be given for experience and education.  The Police Department consists of 20 sworn positions and serves a culturally diverse resident population of about 4,700 in just over 5 square miles of area.  Our population increases significantly in the daytime, and the projected growth to our area is substantial.

The Department enjoys significant support from our community and our elected officials.  Most of our equipment is new, and we have put 8 vehicles in service within the last six months with 4 more vehicles in the delivery process.  The department places a very high priority on training, with many innovative and relevant courses being presented internally as well as opportunities for external training.  We have recently fielded a K9 team and are incorporating plans to add to this valuable function in the future.

The successful candidate will be a service-oriented professional, an excellent manager of conflict and a proven supporter of community-oriented policing.  Applications will be accepted until the close of business on Monday, March 15, 2021. Applications that are received after this deadline will be placed in a pending status for consideration if future positions open.  Any applications that have already been received and are currently in a pending status will be considered for this position.
