The City of Lubbock is looking for at least 15 new officers and you could help fill that void, but time is running out for you to join the force.
This Friday, October 17th is the deadline to turn in an application. Applicants must be at least 21-years-old but not older than 36. If you qualify, you will have to go to a police academy for 22 weeks and here's an idea of what you'll learn.
"We go from the ground, all the way up. We start teaching people, law procedure patrol, how to drive, firearms and defensive tactics," said James Altgelt, Recruiter for the Lubbock Police Department.
If you are interested you can call the Lubbock Police Department at (806) 775-2965.
