In 2022, the Newark Police Department contracted with Epic Productions, LLC of Scottsdale, Arizona to assist with police officer recruitment.
Epic Productions has created a marketing campaign, professional videos and a recruiting-specific website to enhance police officer recruitment by Newark PD. In addition, in the coming months, they will create social media content, conduct search engine optimization, social media advertising and analyzation of data to increase recruitment efforts.
The new recruiting website, joinnewarkpd.com, is now live. Some of the initial videos that were created can be found on the site. The videos were designed to highlight the various special units within the Department, showcase the men and women who make-up the Department, demonstrate how Newark PD holds itself to high standards and exhibit some of the ways Newark PD engages with the community.
In the coming weeks and months, you can find information about our recruiting efforts on our new dedicated social media recruiting pages linked on joinnewarkpd.com.
Acting Chief Mark Farrall commented: “The Newark Police Department prides itself on hiring the best possible candidates to meet our mission of keeping Newark safe and engaging with the community we serve. We’re confident this new marketing campaign showcases our agency and employees to the public and we hope it will result in increased interest in working for the Newark Police Department. I would like to personally thank the Newark Police employees, Newark business owners and members of the Newark branch of the NAACP that participated in this project. ”
The Newark Police Department is currently hiring for the position of police officer and offers written entrance examinations on a weekly basis. The entire hiring process, salary, and other important information can be found at joinnewarkpd.com and links from that site.
Interested applicants can email questions not answered on the website to firstname.lastname@example.org.
