Pocono Township Police looks to fill 3 officer positions

The Pocono Township Police Department is looking for new officers to fill its budgeted force of 18 officers. 

Chief Kent Werkheiser says three officers voluntarily left for various reasons and the department needs to hire those three positions. 

He says one left for another career, one for an injury, and the other was elected to a magisterial judge position.

The process for hire involves an application, written test, physical tests and interviews.

Applications are due Feb. 2 by 4 p.m. and the test will be held Feb. 24 with registration at 8 a.m. at Northampton Community College Pocono Hall Room 108.

Anyone interested in applying can find more information on the Pocono Township website.
