MORRIS — The Morris Police Department is accepting applications to fill at least two patrol officer positions.
Prospective candidates should not only be physically fit but also have “high moral standards, strong character and integrity, and be honest and hard-working,” Police Chief Brent Dite said.
Applications are available at the department in the Morris municipal services building at 200 E. Chapin St. from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m weekdays until May 22. All applications have to be returned to the department by 4 p.m. May 23.
After a mandatory orientation on June 6, applicants will have to pass physical and written tests on June 10. Those who move on will be interviewed and then a list of qualified candidates will be compiled by the Fire and Police Commission.
Applicants do not have to be experienced police officers. According to the police website, applicants must be between 21 and 34 years of age, be U.S. citizens and have a high school diploma and a driver’s license.
