Time is running out to apply to be a City of Erie Police Officer.
The Erie Police Department is looking to recruit new officers, especially those from groups that are underrepresented on the police force.
The department says that groups such as ethnic minorities, veterans, and women are particularly encouraged to apply by June 15th.
Corporal Tom Lenox of the EPD says, “Go online and fill out that application and get it in, because the quicker they do that, the quicker they can get the study material to be better prepared for the upcoming written test in August.”
According to the department, the number of minority applicants who take the test is expected to double over the previous testing period.
