Queen Creek Police Department recruiting lieutenants, administration

Posted

Queen Creek’s first chief of police, Randy Brice, started with the Queen Creek Police Department in mid-July and recruitment is now open for two lieutenants, a senior administrative assistant and system administrator.

The two lieutenants will be part of QCPD’s command staff and will be instrumental in shaping the agency, according to a release.

The ideal candidate for the lieutenant positions will convey a strong and approachable command presence; enjoy teaching, coaching and mentoring; and will be well-versed in community-oriented policing and problem-solving, it states.

With a focus on community-oriented and intelligence led policing, the minimum qualifications for the lieutenant positions include:

  • A bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, criminology, public administration, business management or a closely related field from an accredited college or university, or, an equivalent combination of education and experience sufficient to successfully perform the essential duties of the job; and
  • Seven years of sworn law-enforcement experience; and
  • Three years of supervisory or management experience as a sworn sergeant or above in a law enforcement agency of comparable size or larger --- experience as lieutenant or above in a law-enforcement agency of comparable size is preferable.

To view the full position requirements for the four openings, compensation and benefits --- and to apply --- go to QueenCreek.org/jobs.

The transition to QCPD is anticipated in January 2022 and will include approximately 60 full-time employees in the first fully staffed year. Recruitment for the remaining positions is anticipated to begin in spring/summer 2021. To receive Town of Queen Creek job notifications, complete the job interest card here.
