Clive Police Careers

The Clive community strongly supports its police officers and takes pride in the excellent service they provide.  This positive relationship makes solving crime-related problems easier and is a major reason why officers choose to stay once they join the Clive Police family.   Clive offers excellent pay, benefits, and opportunities for officers to advance their careers.  And in 2021, the department is moving to a brand new Clive Public Safety Facility that is being designed to help officers do their very best work.  Read more below about joining the Clive Police team!
