Officer Practicing
Standards for selecting and hiring "Green River's Finest" include completing an extensive pre-employment process which begins with the T.A.B.E. Entry Level Exam, an oral interview, complete background investigation, polygraph interview, as well as psychological and physical examinations.

If selected for hire, officers are required to comply with certification requirements set by the Wyoming Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission.  Officers must successfully complete the 3 month basic Police Training Academy in Douglas, Wyoming, then annually recertify within the department per P.O.S.T. certification.  P.O.S.T also requires officers to complete 40 hours of certified advance training bi-annually.   To maintain or enhance their skills, officers are also required to attend monthly department training for weapons and other police related topics.

Other positions with the department include Animal Control Officer, Communications Officer, or School Crossing Guard.
