Wheeling PD seeking to fill positions
Wheeling, W. Va. —
The Wheeling Police Department currently is looking for officers to fill three open positions on the force.
Anyone ages 18 to 40 can apply.
Chief Shawn Schwertfeger believes the department should reflect the community and they encourage not just men, but women and minorities to apply.
There are new living requirements that have helped give more people opportunities to work for the Wheeling Police Department.
"You must live within 45 minutes of the City of Wheeling Police Department here at 1500 Chapline Street, so we now have employees that live in Pennsylvania, employees that live in Belmont County, Ohio, one lives in Jefferson County, Ohio,” Schwertfeger said. "We're always looking for quality candidates to take on such a noble career."
Applications are accepted on the third floor of the City-County Building from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Applications can also be done here online.
The deadline to apply is March 23.
