STONINGTON — College students and young adults with an interest in law enforcement have an opportunity to get a head start through the police department’s annual community service officer program.
The Stonington Police Department is hiring four community service officers for the summer. Lt. Michael Peckham said, “The position is part-time, but it offers a chance for young adults to get involved and learn how policing works. They are tasked with a variety of responsibilities including assisting with traffic detail to helping with summer events and they work directly with our full-time officers.”
Applicants must be 18 years old and have reliable transportation and an active driver’s license. The job pays $13.50 per hour and will include duties such as traffic direction, parking enforcement, assistance with community events and general work as a community liaison.
Applications are available at the Stonington Police Department, 173 S. Broad St. in Pawcatuck, and must be received no later than the end of the business day on Friday, June 22. “This is a great opportunity for those interested in exploring a career in law enforcement,” Peckham said.
