The city does not keep employment applications on file. You must submit a new application for each desired position.


The Elkins Policemen’s Civil Service Commission will be conducting testing to fill entry level vacancies within the Elkins Police Department. The process for acceptance into the department differs from the city’s regular hiring practice, including the application form required.
