Austintown police looking for new patrol officers

Published: Wed, December 9, 2009 @ 1:57 p.m.

AUSTINTOWN — The township police department is accepting applications for entry-level patrol officers through near mid-January.

Police Chief Bob Gavalier said the department is now able to hire new officers because three employees will retire within the next six months. They will take applications now through Jan. 10.

Gavalier said he doesn’t know how many officers the department will hire. The starting wage for a patrolman in Austintown is $21.71 per hour.

Capt. Bryan Kloss said applications are kept on file for up to one year, so anyone who has applied in 2009 will be considered, as well as any new applicants.

To qualify, applicants must be at least 21, a United States citizen, have a high school diploma or General Equivalency Development diploma, a valid Ohio driver’s license, a valid Ohio Police Officer Training Academy certificate and cannot have a felony or domestic-violence conviction.

So they can be expecting you to apply correct Joebag? Such an enviable job with such high wages, you better be the first one in line!
Here's a hint joey...the generic and unoriginal cop bashing insults are old and not very entertaining.
