Harold Scott and Tony Phifer have enjoyed fulfilling careers with Greensboro Police Department. They continue to serve GPD by recruiting qualified, enthusiastic people to join the GPD team. And, throughout the year, select GPD officers will join the recruiting team.
You can find Scott and Phifer and the officers at college campuses, job fairs, and military bases describing the personal rewards and employment benefits of becoming a GPD police officer.
GPD also offers opportunities for non-sworn personnel. Civilian positions are filled as needed throughout the year. Several of these jobs require first-, second-, and third-shift rotation. See the City of Greensboro Jobs Web page for these opportunities.
