Owensboro Police Department Hosting a Recruiting Open House
The Owensboro Police Department is looking for new police officers and they've created a special event that will allow folks who are interested in joining the force to meet officers and get more information about the job, its requirements and the role of a police officer in our community and the benefit of not just backing the blue, but becoming a part of it.
Andrew Boggess, OPD's Public Information Officer, joined Angel and me today to chat about the Recruitment Open House, which is later this evening. Andy has been with OPD for 11 years now and is in charge of this evening's open house.
To give you an idea of what it's like to serve on the Owensboro Police Department, here's a great recruiting video that was created back in 2019. In addition to focusing on the duties of patrol officers, the video also highlights some of OPD's specialty units and allows you the chance to hear from people working in local law enforcement.
The Recruitment Open House is set for Thursday, April 21st from 4pm to 7pm CST at the Owensboro Police Department.
Here's the official notice from OPD about this evening's event.
The Owensboro Police Department is located at 222 East 9th Street here in town.
If you like to learn more about the department and job opportunities there, make your plans to attend this evening. As Andy mentioned, the hiring process will be discussed in full so potential recruits will be aware of the next steps and what to expect as they begin their journey of joining the Owensboro Police Department.
