Aspinwall council is looking to add a full-time police officer to the borough’s department.

Anyone interested can review qualifications and applications on the borough’s website.

New hires do not have to live within the borough, or even within the Fox Chapel Area School District. Council voted last month to remove residency requirements for full-timers.

Previously, officers were required to live within eight air miles.

“Council chose to approve the civil service commission’s suggestion to remove the eight air-mile requirement to expand the applicant pool,” Manager Melissa Lang said.

There currently are five full-time officers. Money for a new salary is included in the 2019 budget.

Lang said general requirements include high school graduation or GED, Act 120 certification, US citizenship and mental and physical fitness.

Applicants must be at least 21 years old.

Physical agility tests will be conducted at the Allegheny County Police Academy on Dec. 4 and the written test will follow.

Deadline to apply is 4 p.m. Nov. 26.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
