Application Process for In-State Officers

Step One: Submit Information

Current Connecticut-certified police officers should contact Lieutenant Brian Cunningham at (203) 854-3003 to begin the application and hiring process for the Norwalk Police Department.

Lieutenant Cunningham will need your full contact information (name, address, phone numbers, and email), along with your certification number and expiration date. Include your length of service with your current or previous agency.

The residency requirement listed in the minimum qualifications applies to all applicants.

Step Two: Background Checks & Formal Application

After obtaining the necessary information from the applicant, a decision will be made as to whether a conditional offer of employment will be extended. If a conditional offer is made and accepted, you will be required to complete a background questionnaire and an employment application (available only after being offered a conditional offer of employment). Completed paperwork will be reviewed and the applicant will be photographed and fingerprinted.

Step Three: Testing

Selected applicants will be expected to successfully participate in a polygraph, psychological evaluation, and medical exam, along with a drug screen.

Applicants will also undergo a background investigation.
