Name of business / employer
City of Burlington WA

Job description / duties
Police Officer – Entry Level

Definition:
In most cases, a uniformed peace officer performing work involving the protection of life and property, the enforcement of laws and ordinances, the maintenance of order, the investigation of crimes and the reduction of crimes. Peace officers provide services and education to the public and perform other related work as required. The work is performed in accordance with accepted, contemporary policing practices and departmental regulations.

This position requires consistent attention and commitment to the Department’s Vision and Mission. All assigned duties and tasks are expected to be performed in an efficient and safe manner. The police officer must accept the responsibility to support and promote this organization’s mission and comply with its directives. Personal conduct and behavior must be such that it does not bring disrepute or unnecessarily endanger the public’s trust or confidence in the Department or its members. This position requires a high level of problem-solving ability, self-initiative, and the ability and willingness to work a majority of time without direct supervision. Successful performers are those who are capable and willing to make decisions that are consistent with the Department’s Vision, Mission, goals and objectives.

Equipment / Job Location

Work conditions vary by shift and assignment. The majority of tasks are performed outdoors while working from a police vehicle. If assigned primarily to investigative follow-ups, the work will involve outdoor as well as indoor tasks. This position includes rotating shift schedules and may require work on holidays. Exposure to human bodily fluids and other potentially infectious and hazardous materials is possible. Few tasks require heavy lifting, pushing, pulling or carrying heavy loads. Physical flexibility is important because of the need to enter and exit vehicles recently, search buildings, climb over and around obstacles, and suddenly move out of the way of danger. Mental alertness is important because of the need to make fine distinctions and decision concerning subtle clues of impending danger or to discover inconsistencies in witnesses; or suspects’ statements. Physical and mental demands may change dramatically within seconds and tax the maximum of human endurance. Therefore, police officers must maintain a physical and mental state of fitness and readiness that will enable them to handle recurrent contacts and involvements with dangerous people, animals, and equipment. Exposure to violent human behavior is likely. Frequent use of motor vehicles and firearms is to be expected.

Essential functions

Major duties involve responding to calls for service, patrolling in a directed manner, to deter and detect crime, investigating complaints, citing and/or arresting law violators, following up on pending reports and cases and protecting persons and property. When not responding to priority calls for service or otherwise directed by a supervisor, the police officer is expected to use self directed work time in a efficient manner by self initiating work on neighborhood problems and seeking solutions consistent with the Department Mission. The qualified police officer may be required to temporarily assume the duties, activities and tasks of a Sergeant, as necessary.

Qualifications
Knowledge’s and Abilities required
1. Knowledge and understanding of the problems and attitudes of people of all ethnic and economic groups in relation to law enforcement agencies.
2. The ability to adapt to shift work
