The Rosenberg Police Department is always open to hiring applicants who already have the experience and knowledge to perform the job. We have made the hiring process easier for qualified lateral applicants so you can have a fast and smooth transition from your prior agency to ours.

A licensed police officer from another Texas agency who has at least two years of previous employment as a peace officer in the State of Texas and is found to be employed in “good standing” with no breach of service may have the following requirements waived:

  • Written Examination
  • Polygraph Examination
  • Psychological Screening

In addition to offering a competitive salary, the Rosenberg Police Department offers some of the highest paid monthly incentives in the area. Those incentives are paid on a monthly basis. Incentives can be based on certifications, positions held at the Rosenberg Police Department, and even foreign language skills. View our Benefits page to learn more about our salaries and incentives we offer.


Out of State Police Applicants

For out of state police applicants, we encourage you to visit the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement website for more information on how to obtain a Texas Certification. Before you are hired, you must be a licensed Texas Peace Officer.
