Last year, the university and the county hosted a similar law enforcement recruitment event that held over 50 agencies and saw over 1,000 participants. The result was hundreds hired at various agencies across the state.

This year, 100 agencies are scheduled to be in attendance looking to recruit the next generation of officers.

“This is more than just recruitment; it is an opportunity to build a police force that truly reflects the communities we serve. Whether you’re a recent graduate, a seasoned professional, or someone considering a career shift, come explore the many paths available in law enforcement,” Union County Prosecutor William Daniel.
