Police Officers (Full-time & Part-time)

Town of Marlborough

The Marlborough, NH Police Department is accepting applications for both full time and part time officer positions.

The Marlborough Police Department is one of few local agencies that offer a take home car program for full-time officers.  Each officer is assigned their own cruiser outfitted with all necessary equipment.  All uniforms, body armor, and boots are issued by the department.  Advanced and varied training opportunities are not only available but encouraged for our officers on a regular basis.  The Town of Marlborough provides excellent health and dental insurance, as well as other competitive benefits (paid vacation, personal time, sick leave, state retirement).  Holiday pay is double-time and a half.  Additional $5000 (approximate) of on call pay per year and overtime available, as well as state overtime grants when funded.  Our full-time officers work four ten-hour shifts per week, and no midnight/overnight shifts are required.

Candidates must be 21 years old upon date of hire (18 for part-time positions) and pass the following to be considered for employment: physical agility test, oral boards, extensive background check, medical exam, polygraph and psychological evaluation.  Current physical fitness standards can be found at

NH Certified Officers:

Current NH certified officers are eligible for substantially increased wages, as well as a modified hiring process that emphasizes flexibility and efficiency.  Call or email us for additional information on the many ways you can benefit from joining our team. 

We are also looking to fill part-time officer positions with current NH certified officers.  The part-time positions offer between eight and twenty-four hours per week.

Out of State Certified Applicants:

Are you tired of “take a number” police work?  Does your current administration put their own interests ahead of the rank and file?  Are you looking to make the move to a state much safer and better suited for raising a family?  If any of your answers are “yes,” give us a call to learn more about our department and the opportunities/compensation plans available to you.  Here in Marlborough, your skills are valued and your efforts in the community have benefits you can see and feel on a daily basis.  Be a police officer, not a number.

Most out of state officers qualify for a “law package” course at the NH state police academy which consists of day classes to acquaint the out of state officer with our laws.  These officers are not required to attend the full sixteen week residential academy. 

Academy FAQs:

Applications for the full-time position will be accepted from both certified (NH and Out of State) and non-certified applicants until filled.  Applications for the part-time positions will be accepted from NH certified officers only.
