Lubbock Police Looking for Officers

Lubbock police still need about a hundred officers to fill the goal of two officers per one-thousand residents, but time is running out to apply for the next academy.

Billboards have been added all around town, as well as radio advertisements trying to let people know that Lubbock police are hiring. The next entrance exam is coming up April 2nd, and so far, LPD says about 500 people have shown interest.

One current police recruit, Jonathan Tutino, says this experience has been one of the most challenging and rewarding careers choices of his life, and he has advice for those interested in applying. "You only have integrity one time, and that starts from day one. From the first day you take the test, when you're filling out your background investigation, just be honest and reveal everything."

The entrance exam is April 2nd.
