Application Process

WPD Application Process Banner

Out-of-State Applicants

Out-of-state applicants will go through the same application process, but we will attempt to minimize the required travel to Wichita. If you have any questions, call the pre-employment section at 316-660-3810.

Veteran's Preference

If you are interested in receiving Veteran's Preference, you must submit your DD 214 during your first contact interview at the Training Center. Qualified veterans are guaranteed an interview for a position for which they apply and meet the qualifications for the position, but are not guaranteed to be hired for the job. Spouses of veterans may also receive preference and must submit a copy of their marriage license with the DD 214 paperwork.

Additional Questions

If your questions are still not answered, please contact Human Resources at 316-268-4531 or the Training Academy at 316-660-3810. You may also email the Police Department.
