CPD to offer showcase as a tool for recruitment

Posted

If you have ever wanted to get into police work, or just wanted to find out what services are provided by officers and the department, the Cleveland Police Department wants to invite you to learn about the department during a special event Tuesday evening.

The third CPD Showcase will take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Police Service Center, located at 100 Church St. N.E.

The previous two showcases have been successful, said Sgt. Evie West, CPD public information officer. She said that there have been several who have learned the hiring process for the Cleveland Police Department, what these potential applicants need to know, and how to become an officer with the department.

“Basically, we are going to be opening up our doors and have people come in and ask questions and inquire more about the benefits and the job of being a police officer,” West said. “It’s kind of our way of recruiting.”

Along with discussing those requirements for applicants, the Cleveland Police Department will also spotlight many of the areas of service within the department.

West said that the bomb robot the police department uses, members of the SWAT team, and the K-9 unit will also be featured at the showcase.

“We will also have patrol officers there and members of our Community Relations unit,” she added.

In the past, children have visited during the CPD showcases, and West said they are also welcome. She said many are interested in seeing what officers do, and it is always a possibility that a youngster who comes to the event may become a police office some day.

“We want anyone interested in either applying for a job with the police department, or just wants to learn more about police work, to come to our showcase,” West said. “We also hope they will bring someone with them who has an interest in keeping Cleveland safe and making a difference through police work.”

The showcase is free to the public.
