Note - - For the first time since 2010, Milwaukee is accepting applications for city police officers.

Applicants must be a minimum of 21 years old and a U.S. citizen, and have a high school diploma or Wisconsin GED and a valid Wisconsin driver's license. Applicants must have the physical capacity to perform officer training and job duties and must pass a Milwaukee Police Department background investigation.

The city has hired police officers since 2010 but relied on an existing list of candidates. The new applications will be used to create a new list of candidates for hiring in the future.

The annual starting salary for a Milwaukee police officer is $49,786 with increases to a maximum of $66,606. Applications will be accepted through Oct. 17.

The Milwaukee Police and Fire departments also are accepting applications for their apprenticeship programs.

Police aide and fire cadet applicants must be 17 to 19 years old and expect to graduate from high school by July 1, 2015. Both positions are paid; applications will be accepted through Dec. 5.
