IPD Officer Exam Application Deadline is Monday


The deadline to apply for the upcoming Ithaca Police Office entrance exam has been extended to Monday.

The President of the Ithaca Police Benevolent Association, Thomas Condzella, said, “We work for a great community, we’re looking for the next generation of police officers to help us shape the future of law enforcement in Ithaca, everyone has something to bring to the table.”

Condzella described the Ithaca Police Department as a “small department with big opportunities” that aren’t typically offered by law enforcement agencies of similar community size. According to the Ithaca Police Department Recruitment Website, the 2023 Ithaca Police Department Recruitment Video, and other sources, there are several career opportunities and benefits offered by the IPD including:

Promotional opportunities to the ranks of Investigator, Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Captain.

Ithaca Police Officers make an annual salary of $89,884 after 3 years of service. Ample overtime opportunities are available along with Excellus Blue Cross / Blue Shield health and dental benefits, a wellness program, 20 year New York State Police & Fire Retirement System pension benefit, free membership to “The Gym” (2 locations in Ithaca), along with access to the NYS Deferred Compensation Plan. Several other benefits are also available.

The Ithaca Police Department currently has around 15 funded vacancies, with several more retirements anticipated in the coming months. Interested applicants can apply at www.ipd-recruit.com
