The Hillsboro Police Department actively seeks individuals interested in becoming a part of an organization with a rich history and innovative future. Serving a diverse community, we want self-motivated people seeking a career like no other.
Policing can be a very rewarding profession that provides you with opportunities to make a difference in the community, to know the citizens you serve and to proactively enforce the law. It is more than a job - it is a unique profession filled with opportunities and excitement. Our specialty assignments include: Youth Services, Investigations, Street Crimes, Motorcycle/Traffic team, Tactical/Hostage Negotiation teams, Field Training Officer, Canine Unit, Crisis Intervention team, and Interagency Teams for Narcotics, Gangs and Transit.
Located in the heart of Oregon's silicon forest, surrounded by Intel corporate campuses, Genentech, SolarWorld and other emerging high tech businesses, Hillsboro strives to be an innovative leader in law enforcement. We work hard to serve those who live here as well as those who come and go.
Hillsboro is located 20 minutes from downtown Portland with easy access to MAX light rail and an hour from recreational activities at the Oregon Coast and Mt. Hood. Hillsboro is also home to a Class A Minor League baseball team, the Hillsboro Hops.
