The Greenfield Police Department invites qualified men and women to apply for a rewarding and dedicated career as a police officer. Greenfield is a unique community that balances the beauty and calm of a sparkling village-by-the-sea atmosphere with big city benefits and opportunities. We are a city of 18,000 in population and our officers provide a wide range of police-related services that make the job interesting and challenging. We are a large enough department to engage most contemporary police functions, but small enough to still remember your first name and not treat you like a number. The pay and benefits package, the affordable cost of living, and the friendliness of our citizens make the position of police officer a much sought-after career.
Officers in the City of Greenfield are responsible for the protection of life and property; for the prevention, detection, and investigation of crime; and for maintaining law and order. Assignments are carried out in accordance with established rules, procedures, statutes, and judicial decisions. However, employees must be able to act without direct supervision in emergencies and unusual situations. Work is reviewed through reports, inspections, and observation.
