The GFPD offers a challenging career to those interested in serving their community.
Typically, four to six officer positions are filled each year. Testing for police officers occurs during three cycles per year (Jan/Jun/Oct), through the Montana Law Enforcement Testing Consortium (more info on right). Applicant eligibility is maintained for one year.
The hiring process, from beginning to end, including background investigation, takes approximately three months. The final lists (lateral and entry level) and needs of the agency will determine which applicant(s) will be extended conditional offers and, if needed, which will be sent to the Montana Law Enforcement Academy.
