The Elizabethtown Police Department Civil Service Hiring Exam will be on Saturday April 11, 2015 at the Community Room of the police department at 300 South Mulberry St in Elizabethtown, KY. Due to the high number of applicants there will be two sessions. The first will begin at 9 a.m. with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. and the second beginning at 1 p.m. and registration beginning at 12:30 p.m. The deadline for applications is 4:00 p.m. on Monday April 6, 2015. You will be notified of which session you are in by phone during the week of April 6 so make sure your contact number is current. If you have already turned in an application make sure you keep us informed about phone number changes.

Applicants who successfully pass the civil service exam will have a Physical Agility (PT) test administered by the Department of Criminal Justice Training on Friday April 24, 2015. This test will be at Central Hardin High School located at 3040 Leitchfield Rd. Depending on the number of people who pass the written test, the PT may also require a morning and afternoon session. Central Hardin High School is approximately 3 miles past the police department on the same side of the road.

Physical agility requirements may be found at the Department of Criminal Justice Training website.

TEEN Citizens Police Academy Coming in June
We are having our third Teen CPA coming up June 11-July 9. This will be done right after school and is for persons age 14-18 who have an interest in learning more about law enforcement. The classes are just like the adult CPA but will meet only on Thursday mornings at EPD from 9-1130 a.m. We know people have trips and vacations planned for summer break but these five meetings will provide a wealth of information to any teen interested in learning more about police work. It's a very enjoyable time and our officers look forward to his each year. This can even carry over into our Cadet Program which is for ages 16-21.

Community Survey

Purpose for Conducting the Elizabethtown Community Survey


The Elizabethtown Police Department wished to establish a baseline from which to measure its successes relating to fulfilling the community’s needs.  In order to do so, it was decided to implement a community-wide survey to determine the following:

·    Quality of life issues


·    Attitudes toward police


·    Recent experiences with crime in their neighborhood


The Police Department will use this information to develop strategies to address each of those above listed categories in such a way as to: build police/community trust, engage in deeper levels of problem identification and problem-solving, and to complement and assist in developing our five-year strategic planning document.


We ask that you to take a close look at the data and consider how it represents your perceptions of the three aforementioned categories. Furthermore, we invite you to send us your thoughts as they relates to the findings, and do so in such a way that we might use them to further enhance our service to the community.


Thank you for continued support in our efforts to provide quality service to each person who resides works or visits our community.
