The Pasadena Police Department is an Equal Opportunity Employer that encourages people from every walk of life to apply. We believe that our diversity as a department not only ensures that our officers are more representative of the community in which they serve, it also makes us more effective at what we do. Our current and past recruiting efforts have centered around increasing the number of minorities in our ranks. We are proud to say that approximately 41% of our current staffing identifies as a minority population. In addition, our last two police academies contained 7 females combined and a 66% minority rate.
