Pre-Certified - Lateral Officer Program

The Virginia Certified Officers Program allows those who are currently certified by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services to attend a shortened training program that focuses on the transition to the Chesterfield County Police Department. A pay incentive is provided to certified officers who are selected for employment.

To be eligible, you must

  • be a graduate of a DCJS-certified basic training academy;
  • be employed in Virginia as a patrol officer, patrol deputy, detective, or sworn supervisor;
  • successfully pass all phases of the police officer selection process.

Starting salary shall be commensurate with the salary earned by an incumbent Chesterfield County Police officer with half the years of service.

To ensure consideration, complete a Chesterfield County application for employment.

If you have any questions, call the Police Personnel Unit at 804-748-1547.
