Fulton County Sponsors Law Enforcement Hiring Blitz | Print |
As there is an ever increasing need for highly qualified individuals within our law enforcement ranks, Fulton County in partnership with the United States Department of Labor coordinated a unique hiring initiative which granted more than 526 applicants opportunities for 90+ County Law Enforcement positions within the Sheriff’s Office, Police and Emergency Services departments.  While the net was cast to identify all skilled candidates, the County placed a special emphasis on attracting military veterans to the opportunity.  It’s hoped that the 68 veterans deemed qualified, will be able to successfully complete all the remaining aspects of the employment process which include a physical agility exam, medical evaluations, psychological exam and emergency call center testing.  The event took place at 8:00AM on Wednesday, October 19th at Welcome All Park & Multipurpose Facility; 4255 Will Lee Road; College Park, Georgia 30349.  If you are interested in law enforcement, we encourage all applicants to place an application on file with the Personnel Department to ensure your participation in future hiring activities.    
 
"We are proud to have the best and brightest on the front lines of our police department and we want to add to our ranks," said Fulton County Board of Commissioners Chairman John Eaves. "Streamlining the process and reaching out to military members whom we are so proud of is an added benefit. This is a great initiative and will make the County's police force stronger and take public safety to the next level."  
 
“My team and I are proud to coordinate such an event which not only provides military veterans, who are familiar with the para-military operations of our law enforcement departments and other qualified applicants with an opportunity to serve our community, but more importantly this initiative was an attempt to shorten the hiring and selection process, which for our law enforcement positions, can take anywhere from 6 to 9 months,” says Fulton County Personnel Director, Kenneth L. Hermon, Jr. “This blitz approach allowed us to consolidate some steps and reduce the time by about 2-3 months without jeopardizing the integrity of selection process.”
