To ensure the Menifee Police Department has the personnel to meet the growing needs of the community, the Menifee City Council approved 15 positions. The new positions include eight police officers, four detectives, a sergeant, and a lieutenant. A property room technician position was also added.
Launched on July 1, 2020, the Menifee Police Department has grown to over 100 officers and personnel. The department continues to expand as part of its three-year growth plan, which includes multiple divisions such as investigations, traffic, K9, and crime scene investigation.
“The addition of these new officer positions will allow Menifee Police Department to reinforce our patrol, traffic, and investigation divisions, which ultimately allows us to provide faster response times,” Menifee Police Chief Pat Walsh said. “We remain committed to keeping our city safe and proactively solving issues in the community through creative and strategic policing methods.”
Based on the increased sales tax revenue projections yielding an approximate $4.4 million in additional revenue to the city this fiscal year, the Menifee Police Department was able to accelerate its five-year police staffing plan in order to enhance public safety services and provide more dedicated patrol hours.
“Strengthening public safety and keeping our neighborhoods safe remains a key priority for our city council,” Mayor Bill Zimmerman said. “We will continue to ensure that Menifee Police Department has the personnel and resources needed to achieve that goal.”
The recruitment for new positions opened yesterday and will be open to both lateral police officers and academy graduates. For more information, visit www.governmentjobs.com/careers/cityofmenifee.
