El Paso police seeing decline in applicants to become officers
Posted On: Jan 09, 2019
The El Paso Police Department had 107 vacant positions as of Dec. 16.
The number of police officer jobs being filled across the country is on the decline. In El Paso the number of applications being submitted isn't necessarily the issue. It's the number of people making it through the academy application process.
Sgt. Enrique Carrillo says there are many factors that help explain why we are seeing this decrease.
