St. Joseph To Hire 2 New Police Officers

Abby Faulkner

ST. JOSEPH — The City of St. Joseph is expected to hire two new police officers at Thursday’s council meeting.

Of the more than 120 people who applied for the position, 12 were interviewed. Four of those candidates went on to meet with the personnel committee who narrowed it down to two people.

One of the candidates will fill the position made available when Joel Klein was hired on as the new Police Chief.

The second candidate will become the eighth police officer in the department. The council passed a motion last November which created funding for the new position. The council previously had eight police officers until Justin Tiffany resigned to move to a department in the Twin Cities.

After his resignation the City decided to leave the position open, due to cuts in Local Government Aid.

The names of the two people considered for the vacant positions will be announced at the meeting.
