The Great Bend Police Department is always looking for qualified applicants who want to join us in our mission of making Great Bend a safe place to live. Our department and town are small enough that you won't get "lost in the crowd", but large enough to offer officers various opportunities. The GBPD has a dedicated detective division, several canine positions, a part-time Special Services Team, and a part-time Bicycle Patrol Unit. We're a progressive department that's always exploring new ways to better serve our community. Further information can be obtained by contacting the Department at (620) 793-4120.
