AN ACCREDITED LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY
CAREER DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES

The Career Development Program affords officers the opportunity to advance their careers in a non-supervisory capacity.  It provides officers with educational and departmental opportunities; e.g. instructorships or joining Specialized Teams.  It also fosters professional growth, increases job performance, and improves job satisfaction of Albemarle County officers.  

Newly hired officers will be assigned to the Patrol Division in the Operations Bureau, however, as their career progresses, they will have the opportunity to compete for other assignments within the agency.  Some of these assignments include, but are not limited to the following:  

Investigations
Computer Forensics Unit
Drug Task Force
Traffic Unit
K-9 Unit
School Resource Officer
Crime Prevention Specialist
