Inquire: Contact a Recruiter
If you want to have a "live," interactive talk with MPD's recruiting coordinator, you can call Sgt. Tim Patton: (608) 266-4379. Leave your name, area code and phone number on voicemail and you will get a return call at his earliest convenience!
Local Informational Sessions
MPD Open House: Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 4:00 p.m.
Hear directly from Chief Koval on topics to include what we are looking for in prospective candidates, the Madison method of policing, as well as a detailed description of the hiring process. Interested individuals can hear an overview of the entire hiring process, ask questions, and then take the optional written test (go to Written Test Explanation for more details). There is no pre-registration required and no "fees" associated with taking the test. Those who come to the informational session will be provided with an application kit.
