HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - The Hastings Police Department is currently accepting applications for five new officers to join their team.

This comes after several resignations and retirements, opening those spots in the force.

“We’re kind of grouped in with the rest of the nation that’s having issues with hiring and retention at this time,” explained Captain Mike Doremus. “Typically we’re pretty well staffed, at this time with a couple resignations, a couple retirements, we just need 5 at this time. It’s not unheard of, but it’s not common either.”

The department is looking for candidates that exemplify several outstanding qualities, as well as have a passion for policework.

“We’re looking for the best candidate to join our agency or team. Someone who’s qualified to be a law enforcement officer, those who have aspired to be in law enforcement, or somebody who wants to come and join our community and see what policing is all about,” said Doremus.

Applications are due by August 8th, and you can apply here.
