Lateral Entry Applications are Always Being Accepted

The City always accepts applications for lateral entry Police Officers.

"Lateral entry" means the applicant already possesses credentials as a bona fide Law Enforcement Officer.  An applicant who does not possess certification by the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission (CJTC) is still eligible for lateral entry, provided the applicant can obtain equivalency certification through the CJTC.

If interested, please download a City of Tenino Employment Application and either mail or bring the completed application to City Hall.  Applicants granted an interview will be so notified by the Chief of Police and the notification will include further instructions regarding the employment process.
