Fifty-four applicants were present Wednesday morning in the Casper Events Center for the opportunity to become one of Casper’s finest.

Sergeant Chris Hadlock from police career services was optimistic about the turnout.

“We’ve got a number of people from out of town, we’ve got a number of people that are certified officers of other agencies across the United States. A lot of peoples first time ever wanting to get into law enforcement. So, we’ve got a good mix, females, males, it’s just a nice mix.”

For a potential recruit to move onto the next phase of the hiring process, Casper Police require that all applicants must be at least twenty-one years old, pass a written exam, and complete a series of physical tests including: sit-ups, push-up, and a timed mile and a half run.

Twenty-one of the new hire hopefuls will not be moving on to the next round of testing and of the thirty-three left, only a handful will be offered a job

“Off this eligibility list that we’re building, we’re looking at about six people off this list. Then we will be doing our own academy in January once we get everybody through the background process”
