Join Our Team

The Los Alamitos Police Department is looking for quality people who are either Lateral Police Officers, Academy trained recruits, and occasionally recruit officers who we sponsor through a Police Academy. The Police Department also hires for non-sworn professional positions who provide support and other essential services to our Department.

The members of the Los Alamitos Police Department work to create police-community oriented partnerships that address causes of crime via a culture of proactive law enforcement, as well as other community issues. These partnerships become the mechanism to effectively solve problems and foster connectivity with the community.
