The Fairview Heights Police Department is one of the few departments in the area that provides direct testing and hiring. You don’t have to go through an organization to be part of our department. You just need to click below and introduce yourself. We understand testing can be intimidating, which is why we now do our own individualized testing and hiring.
WE ARE NO LONGER IN THE TESTING PROCESS.
We will re-open traditional testing next year.
We are now accepting lateral entry applications.
The Fairview Heights Police Department offers many programs throughout the year for citizens of all ages.

Stop The Bleed
Stop the Bleed was added to our free classes for citizens in 2018. The initiative was created by the American College of Surgeons to teach bleeding control. The theory is to teach non-medical personnel how to properly pack wounds and use tourniquets in case of an active shooter or other mass casualty event. We currently have two instructors, Officer Jon Friederich and Officer Alicia Compton, who provide the proper techniques to save lives during this two hour course. The classes are held at various times throughout the year and all participants are given a free tourniquet to take home.
R.A.D. (Women’s Self Defense)
R.A.D., short for Rape Aggression Defense System is a free class offered to all women over the age of 14. The four-week training focuses on education and awareness and empowers women to say NO, defend themselves, and prepare for “real world” encounters. This internationally recognized program has a lifetime return and practice policy. Three instructors, Officer Alicia Compton, Officer Tony Flinn and Executive Assistant Amber Hopkins have taught over 90 women how to defend themselves in the short time this program has been offered. Classes are held several times a year.
“My son is in their youth program and it is amazing, these officers go above and beyond to protect and make this world better!“
“Very professional; I’ve felt safe here for over 30 years!“
“Every interaction I have had with a Fairview officer has been extremely professional and satisfactory. Their response time is always quick. If there is a solution to be had, they will find it.“
“By far the best group of men & women that I was lucky to get to know.“
“This afternoon I had to run a few errands at St. Claire Square Mall with my 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son. I was in between my daughter and son as we stepped onto the escalator. My son had one foot on the moving part of the escalator and the other part on the floor, when he decided, as most 2 year olds will do, that he didn’t want to go anymore. He let go of my hand and fell. I panicked and had to let go of my daughter’s hand and try to get up to my son with the escalator still moving. Out of nowhere one of your police officers scooped my scared little guy off the floor and rode the escalator all the way down with him. He let him hold his “walkie talkie” and kept him calm. Given all of the sadness in the country right now, I wanted to let you know that all of you are appreciated and because of you my son is telling everyone that a police man saved him today. Thank you for your help today and for all that you do. I didn’t catch the officer’s name, but thank you for making my little guy’s day and for keeping this Momma from having a panic attack. Prayers for safety and comfort during this awful time.“
