The Edmonton Police Service is taking a road trip to Cold Lake this weekend to meet with people who want to join their ranks.
The EPS is looking to hire another 60 new police officers for two recruit classes and for an experienced officer class in 2017.
“We are currently travelling across Alberta to find the best candidates to protect and serve our community,” says Const. Heather Spence with the EPS Recruiting Section. “This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who has considered becoming a police officer, or those looking for a career change that offers stability, variety, and the opportunity to learn skills no other job can offer.”
Recruiters will be available to discuss the following topics:
Why you should consider a career with EPS
The opportunities within the EPS
The requirements and selection process
The training for new recruits prior to graduation
Recruiters will also discuss the benefits of becoming an EPS officer:
Reduce crime, solve local issues and change people’s lives
Over 100 different career options to choose from
Paid recruit training of $65,931
Make $81,676 after two years of service
The career information session will run from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday and the written test session will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Both sessions will take place at the Lakeland Inn and everyone is welcome.
