Military Veterans


Our military service members shoulder the responsibility of protecting our entire nation.  The High Point Police Department is committed to supporting military veterans as they transition into careers as law enforcement officers. Military veterans’ ability to work in teams, capacity to adapt to challenging tasks and responsibilities, attention to detail and drive to succeed, and a host of other skills and training make them ideal candidates for the High Point Police Department.

The High Point Police Department offers military incentive pay. For each full year of service an applicant will receive a 1% increase in salary for up to 10 years of service as an active duty member of the United States armed forces. Applications must be received within one year from the date of honorable discharge to qualify for the incentive pay. The applicant must be recently removed from active duty within the last calendar year, and received an honorable discharge at the end of enlistment. This incentive cannot be combined with the lateral police officer incentive pay.

Military applicants must take part in the same hiring process and attend a full Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) class if they wish to be sponsored / hired by the High Point Police Department.
