Inquire: Contact a Recruiter

If you want to have a "live," interactive talk with MPD's recruiting coordinator, you can call Training Officer Chanda Dolsen: (608) 261-9815. Leave your name, area code and phone number on voicemail and you will get a return call at her earliest convenience!

Local Informational Sessions

Date: Sunday, April 28 at 4:00 p.m.
MPD Training Center, 5702 Femrite Drive

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.

Alternative Written Test Locations

In an attempt to attract a talented and diverse workforce, MPD conducts a nationwide recruitment campaign. One of the initiatives designed to promote participation in our hiring process is off-site written testing. Learn more »
