Requirements for Non-sworn Positions:

Police officers (including Lieutenants, Sergeants, and Captains) are considered sworn positions. Other positions within the Police Department, such as Crime Scene Investigators, Custody Officers, and Communications Operators, are referred to as non-sworn. Non-sworn positions typically do not have the same rigorous hiring process as sworn officers.

Non-sworn staff are still required to be of excellent moral character with no felony convictions and may require further testing and background investigations. See the official job bulletin or contact the City of Glendale's Human Resources Department for more information
