Children:

We do not have childcare facilities in the Police Department and are concerned for the safety of children. We encourage applicants to leave children at home unless the children are old enough to sit and wait in the Lobby. If a child is causing a problem the parents will have to re-schedule for a time when arrangements can be made for childcare. Children are not permitted in the printing area for safety and security reasons.
