The Idaho Falls Police Department conducts public safety testing for applicants with no experience in law enforcement. Applicants who have no previous law enforcement experience are known as "Probationary" police officers.
Officers whom are interested in joining the IFPD from another law enforcement agency are typically "Lateral" police officers. Each of these classifications has a different job posting, application and hiring process.
Those interested in receiving an email notification regarding future testing opportunities and application timetables are encouraged to register for a job alert for law enforcement positions.
