The Springfield Police Department would like to invite anyone who is interested in becoming a Springfield Police Officer to attend an upcoming informational seminar. The seminar will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, February 12th, at the Springfield Regional Police and Fire Training Center, 2620 W. Battlefield Road.

Applicants will learn about the entire testing process including the physical agility test, written examination, oral interview, background investigation and post-offer exam. It is not mandatory that an applicant attend, but information given during the seminar may prove helpful to them during the testing process.

The next opportunity for police officer testing will be Feb. 22nd and the deadline to apply is Feb. 15th. We are also hiring experienced officers looking to move to SPD (lateral hires). The deadline to apply is Jan. 11th, and testing begins Jan. 18th.

Applications should be submitted here. Additional dates for testing will be added to the SPD’s website throughout the year. For more information, contact Officer Brandon Keene at 417-864-1796 or
