JPD to begin hiring year-round

JONESBORO, Ark. – The best way to make a change in your community is to get involved and Jonesboro police are looking for eager recruits now more than ever to help improve our community.

Beginning Friday, Dec. 29, 2017, the Jonesboro Police Department will take applications for police officer on a year-round basis. In the past, applications have been accepted generally twice a year with testing following shortly thereafter.

With the New Year, comes the change to take applications open-endedly and testing will be held once a month. These changes are necessary to make our hiring process more efficient. In the past, it has taken up to five months to process applicants. With a steady stream of applications, rather than a large amount at one time, we hope to be able to process applicants much quicker.

To apply, interested persons should go to, click on “Employment Opportunities”, and then search for the Police Officer job announcement.

Anyone with any questions regarding the hiring process can contact Sgt. Cassie Brandon at or Cpl. Dave McDaniel at
