The Spirit Lake Police Department is proud to be a progressive, dynamic law enforcement agency with several unique benefits to offer prospective candidates in the backdrop of beautiful Spirit Lake, Idaho.

Given the small, tight knit demeanor of our department, officers can expect to gain experience in a vast area of police work that they may not otherwise be exposed to at the patrol level at larger agencies. Each officer is valued and provided with training to successfully carry out cases from start to finish on their own including initial reports, investigation, evidence collection, family and community interaction, and through the adjudication process with the courts.

Lateral officers have the opportunity to continue their career in a supportive community and can expect to build their skills in police work with a variety of opportunities for advancement.

We proudly partner with community schools, businesses and neighborhoods and work tirelessly to uphold the standards of Community Policing and public service. To support our mission of professionalism, we seek candidates who demonstrate guiding principles of accountability, leadership and ambition who are seeking a fulfilling career in law enforcement. If that sounds like you, we encourage you to apply today!
SLPD is excited to announce our VOLUNTEER PROGRAM!! This is our chance to provide an opportunity to anyone in the community who has an interest in law enforcement and would like to become actively involved with Spirit Lake PD.

Anyone interested in applying can submit an employment application (see below). We are looking forward to working together with the community like never before!
