Metro Police is looking for people to join its ranks. A bill passed by the Nevada Legislature and signed by Governor Sandoval approved more money for hiring more officers.
The department will hold an open house starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday for people interested in becoming officers.
The event will be at the Jerry Keller Training Facility, 9880 West Cheyenne Avenue. Academy staff will be on hand to explain improvements to the curriculum and training. They will also be giving tours of the facility.
The initial written tests for full-time police recruits and reserve officers will start in July. For information on the written portion of the application process, go to protectthecity.com.
