Salute the Badge: Missoula PD looking for recruits

MISSOULA – The Missoula Police Department is looking to restock its ranks so its hosting recruitment testing at Sentinel High School.

The event is scheduled for February 23 and recruits will go through a physical and written test to see if they qualify for the job.

MPD says that anyone in decent shape with a high school education should be able to pass both tests. Once someone passes both tests they are placed in a pool of potential hires waiting for the next MPD vacancy.

“Typically we like to have a pool of candidates on hand that we can push through the process when we find ourselves with vacancies this is one of those times,” Missoula Police Department spokesman Sgt. Travis Welsh said.

“It’s hard to predict when the next opening will be and too often it’s been before we know it and we are scrambling to fill vacancies,” he added.

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Missoula Police Department must pre-register for the recruitment. Click here for more information and to pre-register.
