Department Staffing 

Currently staffing the Clovis Police Department are 213 employees, of which 117 are sworn officers. High morale, fair and equitable wages and benefits make for little turn-over in employment in the department. We are always looking for quality, dedicated people to join our team.

Reserve Officer Program 

In addition to the full-time officers, there is a Reserve Officer program. Citizens representing a wide variety of occupations volunteer to be reserve officers and help extend the reach of the full-time officers. These sworn civilians consider it a privilege to serve the citizens of Clovis. The public most often sees them at special events like the Rodeo, the Rodeo Parade, Big Hat Days, Farmers Market and holiday patrols. You will see our Reserve Officers in patrol cars, on bicycles and on motorcycles. 


The Communications Division is the primary answering point for all emergency and non-emergency requests for police and emergency medical assistance in Clovis. Dispatchers are almost always the first contact the public has with the Police Department. They are required to triage and prioritize the incoming calls for service and make referrals to other agencies when appropriate. These are just a few of the tasks the Communications Division performs. Please visit the City of Clovis employment page for application and information on joining our communications team.
