Hiring Process for New Police Department Applicants

Pinning Ceremony
The Burlington Police Department's new Online Job Application and Career Portal, called NeoGov, is now live. NeoGov automates the hiring and selection process. The system is a hosted, web-based solution that allows applicants to apply for a position within the City wherever they have access to the internet.

You can now apply online by clicking on the job title in which you are interested and then clicking the "apply" link. If this is the first time you are applying using our online job application, you will need to create an account using the link for "Applicant Login" and select a Username and Password. After your account has been established, you can build an application by clicking on the "apply" link. This application can be saved and used to apply for more than one job opening. Each applicant must have their own email address to create an application. If you do not have an email account, you can sign up for a free email provided by services such as Yahoo! Mail, Google Mail or Hotmail

If you have already created your personal account, please login here.
To apply online for a Police Officer position, please create an account (registration is free).
