This position is for those that wish to become full-time police officers for the City of Grand Rapids, but have not yet attended a police academy. We will sponsor you to attend the GVSU Police Academy, while paying you full-time wages and benefits. Upon successful completion of the academy, and in-house GRPD training, you will be sworn in as a Certified Police Officer.
We are currently preparing for the Sponsored Recruit Officer application process. We are hopeful to start this process at the end of July 2021. This process would send recruits to the GVSU Summer 2022 Police Academy.
