Moraga Police Department Hiring Process

The Moraga Police Department (MPD) recently lost two officers to other police agencies. With an authorized strength of twelve sworn officers, losing two in a short time creates staffing issues and is costly to the Town. The approximate cost of all expenses associated with the hiring process for one new officer, before the officer is completely trained and able to work alone, ranges from $63,000-$73,000. To fill the Town’s two vacant positions, the Department completed an extensive recruitment and selected two of the best qualified applicants to start the lengthy background process, which includes a polygraph, an extensive personal background check, and medical and psychological exams. MPD is hopeful that both candidates will successfully complete the process and can begin field training within the next few months.
