The Saginaw Township Police Department is always accepting applications for employment. Applications are reviewed for qualifications and then retained on file for up to one year. Applications are available online, upon request from the Saginaw Township Police Department, or through the Saginaw Township governmental offices.

The personal requirements for all persons to apply and be considered for employment are as follows:

  • United States citizen
  • Minimum age of 21 years
  • Be licensed or able to be licensed through the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (M.C.O.L.E.S.)
  • Possess at minimum, an Associates Degree or have 60 college credits with passing grades from an accredited college or university
Once an application has been accepted for consideration, the applicant will be placed into a testing pool and applicants will be notified of the next testing period. Once the applicant takes and passes the written portion of the testing process, he/she will be advised of the next step; the interview. If the applicant is still in consideration for employment following the interview process, he/she will be notified. At that time the applicant will be required to submit to a background investigation packet. During this time the applicant will also be required to complete ride-a-long with at least two different Field Training Officers. Those officers will submit a written evaluation of the applicant to the hiring board.

If an applicant receives a conditional offer of employment, he/she will be required to submit to and pass the following:

  • A physical examination
  • A psychological examination
  • A drug screen
  • Eye exam and vision test
  • Completion of the M.C.O.L.E.S. licensing process
  • Complete all requirements and objectives with the Field Training Unit's training program
