Springfield Police Department Struggling To Find Qualified Applicants

Springfield Police Department Struggling To Find Qualified Applicants

By Chase Snider. CREATED Jan 20, 2013

You may be used to having to have a resume for your job interview, add to that list a mental evaluation, physical fitness test, and an intense background check and you might be ready to be a cop in Springfield.

The department is hoping to get twenty-one new recruits for its academy next month, but officials say they may not hit that number.

The Springfield News-Leade reports the shortage of qualified applicants is worsened by the fact that eight high-ranking officers with at least twenty years experience left last year.
