Las Vegas police seek new recruits

Las Vegas police say they’re looking to hire new recruits, according to a statement released Wednesday.

Applications will be accepted starting midnight on Friday. The application process will be open until Las Vegas police receive 900 applications or by midnight Feb. 20, whichever occurs first, police said.

Although experience is not required for the position, applicants must have a high school degree or equivalent and have a Nevada driver’s license at the time of hire.

Applicants must also be at least 21 years old and be a U.S. citizen by March 5. Additionally, applicants must not have been convicted for a crime in Nevada and have no misdemeanors or convictions involving the use or attempt of physical force.

To be considered, applicants must also pass the Las Vegas police background pre-screening.

According to Las Vegas police, applicants who are unavailable to apply at the time will have another chance, as more positions will open by June.
