The Mesa Police Department (MPD) is made up of a diverse group of professionals from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. There is no cookie-cutter employee here. From our police officers to our civilian positions, we offer many rewarding career paths often overlooked by qualified candidates. A job with MPD isn't what you see on police television shows. Our focus is on providing long-term careers that keep our community safe.

The Mesa Police Department offers many lucrative career paths in addition to our police officer opportunities. We have civilian positions within communications, records and crime lab that all impact our department and community as much as our officers do. Civilian members experience exciting careers that are challenging while, at the same time, helping members of the community when they need it most.

Employee Testimonials

The first Christmas day I worked, I was leaving a call involving neighbors who couldn't agree on where to place a garbage can, a little girl about 5 years of age and her mother came out from the house across the street and brought me a plate of Christmas cookies. They thanked me for doing my job and working on Christmas so they could all feel safe and enjoy theirs. It really reminded me of the reason I started this career.

The department as a whole has been very supportive in assisting me to reach my goals. We have great female as well as male mentors within the department that have assisted me greatly with my goals.
