Bossier City Police Job Fair

Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER CITY, La. -

The Bossier City Police Department is looking for a few good "recruits". The department held its first job fair since 2005 in hopes of finding qualified applicants to fill several positions. Stephan Tanner is putting in an application to become one of Bossier's finest. The recently laid off accountant says law enforcement is something he's always wanted to do. "It's an opportunity that I might have passed on had the situation been different," Tanner said. Bossier City Spokesman Mark Natale says the job fair serves two purposes. "To educate them on the process of what needs to be submitted what are the qualifications and at the same time it helps us find qualified applicants to build our applicant pool," Natale said. The department is seeking to fill twelve positions for patrol and a few in the jail. Natale says applicants should expect a long process. "There's civil service test, there's background checks that need to be done, interview process, a 12-week long academy and then 3-weeks of our mini-academy and then 3 months on the streets with a field training officer," Natale said. Tanner says his skills as an accountant will fit perfectly with the department. Natale said about 125 people came to the fair.
