Crestview Police Department looking for new recruits

The Crestview Police Department is looking for some new recruits.

They held a hiring event for police officers and other public safety jobs - including emergency dispatchers.

Dozens of people turned up to Warriors Hall.

For some, it was about continuing their service.

"So, I have a background in the military. I went out to Afghanistan, served my country, and I developed a sense of pride within the nation, so when I came back home I wanted to be able to serve not only just my nation, but also my town," said Benjamin Posey, an applicant for the job.

Salaries for experienced dispatchers start at $30,000 a year, and $38,000 a year for experienced officers.

You can learn more about open job positions and apply at the City of Crestview's website.
