Police Officers
The Town of Derry is conducting written and physical agility testing for Police Officer candidates on Saturday, May 3, 2014.  Qualified candidates will be subject to an extensive background investigation.  New officers must complete a probationary period.  Full time NH Certified Officers are encouraged to apply and are exempt from the written test.  Work schedule includes rotating shifts, weekends and holidays.  This is an exciting opportunity to join a busy proactive Police Department.  Starting pay is $22.45 per hour, with an excellent benefits package.  Click on the following links to download the appropriate employment application packet.  All packets must be received by Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 5:00 pm, in order to test on May 3.

In addition to hosting our own testing process, the Derry Police Department is also a member of the Great Bay Community College Police Testing Alliance and may utilize the test results from the Great Bay Community College Police Test to establish an eligibility list.  For more information about the Great Bay Community College Police Testing Alliance and the current testing schedule, visit
