Aspinwall accepting applications for full-time police officer
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.
