Career Paths

Advancement & Promotions

Advancement within the City of Hampton Police Division can occur in one of two ways:

  • Career officer program
  • Promotion

The Process

After completion of the nineteen-week Police Academy training and field training the officer is assigned to a designated shift and will remain in a probationary status for a minimum of one year.

Once released from the probationary period officers are eligible for numerous training opportunities including a wide variety of schools to enhance career development.
