Working for the Hutto Police Department

Currently Accepting Applications


Next testing date is September 16th, 2017

The Hutto Police Department is pleased to announce a temporary change to our hiring process.  Effective immediately, the Hutto Police Department is accepting applications from police officers with a current Texas peace officer commission who have at least two continuous years of law enforcement experience for a modified hiring process.  Officers who meet this requirement, as well as the other requirements listed for a police officer position, will move to step 5 of the hiring process.  This means that current officers with at least two years of experience will not be required to wait for the next testing day, nor will they be required to undergo the physical fitness or written test.  Those who are interested are encouraged to complete the “Police Officer” application as opposed to the “Police Cadet” application, and submit it to the Hutto Police Department.  Please direct any questions to Sgt. Conor Mitchell at 512-759-5963, or by email to .

Hutto Police Department has recently expanded the hiring process to include non-certified civilians for the position of police cadet.
