Applicants are required to pass pre-employment assessments and tests. A valid State of North Dakota peace officer license must be acquired upon hire or as determined by the department and a valid driver’s license is also required.

Applicants are subject to a background investigation, credit check, and a personal history questionnaire screening. Upon a conditional offer, the candidate will be required to complete a BCI background check, polygraph, psychological exam, pre-placement evaluation, and drug screening. The starting pay is $24.53/hour ($51,022/year) plus benefits. Current or former law enforcement officers may be eligible to start at $25.26 – $25.97/hour ($52,541 - $54,018/year) depending on experience, as well as have a shortened training program.
