Santa Maria Police Department holds an open house for law enforcement careers

SANTA MARIA, Calif. -- The Santa Maria Police Department held an open house for those interested in law enforcement careers from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday.

"I think it’s very important. Not only is it a recruitment drive, but it’s also an opportunity for us to meet various members of our community", says SMPD Lieutenant Terry Flaa.

Police officials say they learned more about the day-to-day responsibilities.

“Have them come into the police department and see what it is that we do on a day-to-day basis and give them that initial exposure to the career of law enforcement", says Flaa.

Those interested also received a tour of the police station in Santa Maria.

“It’s a wonderful career, first and foremost. So as far as a benefit to the individual, it will provide them with the opportunity to live a very comfortable life, especially within the community of Santa Maria", says Flaa.

If you cannot make this open house police officials say to continue to apply through their career website.
