The Cut Bank Police Department is hiring for a full time patrolman position. We may be hiring two out of the next hiring pool, but we definitely will be hiring two by the new year. If you are interested or have any questions, feel free to send me an email or get an application at the Montana Job Service website.

Can you provide a few details? Salary, benefits, retirement package, residency requirement, uniform allowance, will they put people through the academy or are they looking for laterals, etc.

Wow Schultzy...... I just looked at the department website. That is a small department. How easy would it be to become an out of state lateral? Searched through the job service website to find out the information TheSarge asked about but was not able to locate the police officer position.  Is there a direct link?

I just put the listing in there yesterday at the job service. They may not have posted it yet. POST certification is preferred, but it is not necessary. We will put officers through the academy within the first year of hire if they commit to a three year contract. Starting wage is 16.61-18.00 per hour depending upon experience. Our patrolmen who are off probation are making 19.70 per hour. This is a competitive wage considering cost of living in Cut Bank Montana. We are a small department. We will be fully staffed at 7 by the beginning of 2014. Benefits do include retirement and health for the employee. We also are able to use city facilities for free (pool and gym).


Lateral transfers from other states are allowed as well. The only requirement is to pass the Montana Equivalency  Test within the first year of hire. Our department will pay for the testing as well. Uniforms, except for boots, are provided by the agency.

The job is now listed on the Cut Bank Montana Job Service website. Again, we are going to be hiring two officers by the new year. For new officers, we will train and put you through the academy with a three year commitment to our department. In small departments, you get plenty of training to prepare you for transfers to larger departments. We handle most of our own cases from initial call to the end of the investigation. You are not assigned to a specific facet of law enforcement. You can work traffic, investigations, community-policing programs, and other directed patrol.


Our department trains a lot together, and we are in process of creating a county/city joint tactical team. It is a pretty close knit department with a focus on family. We make sure officers are able to attend family functions and school events for their children. We do our best to lessen the strains law enforcement life puts on families. We are looking for family and community oriented people who are motivated and able to keep up with the demand of small town policing. Again, inbox me with any questions.

Schooling (finishing my BA degree) and fixing a mistake I should have taken care of years ago (losing the spare tie, but atleast I'm getting there.  I've dropped about 10 pounds in the past 2 moths, it's started out slow but it's picking up speed).

Losing weight slowly is the best way to keep it off. Do you live in Montana?

You should cut down your intake, any meal that you eat should fit in the palm of your hand. I don't mean stack it either, Chew your food throughly, put down your fork after each bite and when you do this your stomach will let you know you are full probably before you finish your meal. It takes a lot to do it this way but I have lost about 5 pounds a week although I have reached a plateau for now.

Oh, I have definitley started watching what I have been eating; main reason why my weight has been dropping.  I'm eating less than what I have been all my life (not starving, just less) and have been adding things like fruits and vegetables more into my diet.  Also, my water intake has increased.  Like I said, it's been slow because not only have I just started but first couple of weeks it was just a battle getting used to working out more often since I am going from couch patato lol.
