Employment Opportunities

We recruit men and women who have a good background, strong work history, and solid character. We find that these individuals, even if they do not have prior law enforcement experience, can become outstanding police officers. At left, two recruits perform an exercise at the Police Academy at Golden West College. One of the Academy Recruit Training Officers, Jim Cota, offers them guidance and encouragement. Sergeant Cota is a full-time Training Officer with Laguna Beach who also works at the Academy. There, he is able to keep an eye on LBPD's newly hired officers.

We are also continuously recruiting for positions such as Beach Patrol, Dispatch, Records and Parking. If you are interested in applying for a position in our Police Department, please apply online.

If you have additional questions, please contact Department Training Officer M. Short at (949) 497-0374 for more information or you can email him by clicking here.
