Description

Police - University of Missouri Columbia

Applicants who have not been through an academy/are not Missouri POST certified, may be hired as a Police Officer in Training and sent through a police academy at MUPD’s cost. Police Officers in Training are paid and accrue university benefits while they are in the police academy. Upon successfully completing the academy, passing the Missouri POST exam, and meeting the minimum qualifications (see below), Police Officers in Training will transition to the Police Officer position and undergo field training with the MU police department.
 
MUPD officers have full powers of arrest in accordance with Missouri Revised Statutes, additionally holding City of Columbia commissions and a mutual aid agreement with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department to assist with enforcement throughout Boone County as needed. Because we are a full-service department, we are responsible for enforcing statutes, laws and regulations within our jurisdiction, as well as providing community programming, and conducting our own investigations. This allows personnel opportunities to gain experience and specialize in a wide variety of call types and police services. Officers must graduate from a police academy in compliance with Missouri state statue for certified peace officers and maintain continuous training in compliance with Missouri’s Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST).
