Employment

Portland Patrol Inc. is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE). Qualified applicants are considered for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other status or characteristic protected under applicable state or federal law, unless it there is a bona fide occupational requirement necessary to the normal operation of our business.

PPI offers armed positions, full or part-time, for applicants with prior police experience (minimum three years) and full or part-time positions for unarmed to applicants 18 years and older.

Applicants for unarmed positions must be at least 18 years, possess a high school diploma or GED, and be eligible to be licensed by the State of Oregon (paid by PPI) including drug test and fingerprint background check.

Unarmed applicants new to the workforce (or with prior security experience) will enjoy working in an atmosphere where you are supported and provided with ample training to do your job. For those applicants seeking a career in law enforcement, Portland Patrol Inc. is a “training ground” where you are paired with a training officer with prior police experience and work daily alongside Portland Police bike officers assigned to PPI.

If you have questions about a job as an unarmed officer, please contact Mike Boyer at 503-224-7383.

Applicants for armed positions must be 21 years or older and have prior police experience and be eligible to be licensed by the State of Oregon (paid by PPI) including drug test and fingerprint background check.

Armed applicants, who have prior police experience, will enjoy working in an environment with close connections to Portland Police Bureau, downtown businesses and an opportunity for plenty of exercise providing security services on the sidewalks in Portland! PPI offers flexible hours and paid parking.

If you want more information on armed positions, please contact Jeff Kaer at 503-224-7383.
