The application process for the NWPD is an extensive one. Please make sure you allow yourself sufficient time to complete this process. It is recommended that you review our minimum requirements and preferred qualifications.

By completing this application, you acknowledge and understand that honesty, integrity, and lifestyle are areas that are scrutinized closely when considering applications, and that all questions in these documents are necessary for this purpose.

All documents submitted with your application become property of the NWPD and will not be returned to the applicant.
