Rhode Island Police Chief’s Association



PoliceApp has partnered with the Rhode Island Police Chiefs Association (RIPCA) to provide Entry Level Police Officer applicants and participating departments a centralized recruitment program.

How It Works

Pay one fee & apply to multiple departments for six months

Your six-month application eligibility period begins on the date you pay the processing fee. During this 6-month period, you may apply for any Entry Level Police Officer position advertised by a department participating in the RIPCA centralized recruitment program, provided you meet that department’s minimum requirements, as well as any other department-specific prerequisites.


A single processing fee of $40 allows you to submit an Entry Level Police Officer application to all Rhode Island departments participating in this program.  

Please note that this special rate is only for Entry Level Police Officer positions with participating Rhode Island departments through the Centralized Recruitment Program.  Some departments may charge an additional application fee, which the applicant will be responsible for.

Neither RIPCA nor PoliceApp can control how many departments will recruit over the course of any given six-month period. A minimum number of open positions cannot be guaranteed. Each department is responsible for its own hiring standards, prerequisites, and hiring timeline. Departments may choose to charge an application fee in addition to the $40 fee. No additional charges will be assessed by PoliceApp during the six-month eligibility period.
