Become a police officer: start here

Welcome to the Nicholasville Police Department! If you believe your work should do more than just pay the bills — that it should improve the community and make a difference in someone’s life — then a career in law enforcement may be for you.

Our agency accepts applications any time.  Applications will stay on file for 1 year from date of submission.  Keep up to date on application deadlines for future processes by following our FaceBook page or Twitter feed.

Police officers see their work matter every day: responding to a traffic collision, helping a family in crisis, investigating a crime. It’s something different every day. We are looking for men and women from a variety of backgrounds who care about people and want to help solve problems.

I’m interested. Now what?

We are committed to the prevention of crime and the protection of life and property. With community service as our foundation, we are driven by goals to enhance the quality of life.

The Nicholasville Police Department is committed to continue building relationships with the community that we serve. We will provide the highest level of service to keep our citizens safe and build public trust. Community policing is very important to me and we will foster the relationships that we have developed over the years with our community partners.
