>>Lancaster PD Needs to Hire 15 New Officers
(Lancaster, PA) -- Officials with the Lancaster Bureau of Police say they need to hire 15 new officer recruits. Department leaders say the current openings are due to recent retirements. The bureau says it will pay for an officer to go to the police academy, which typically costs around six-thousand dollars, while also paying the officer a full-time salary. It says the diversity of assignments is one big draw the department has over other bureaus that are also recruiting.
