(Dekalb County, October 26, 2015) – On Monday, November 2, 2015, Georgia Piedmont Technical College (GPTC) will host a career fair for aspiring deputies and officers from 9:00 a.m. until noon at its Law Enforcement Academy in Covington.
“A career in law enforcement is a rewarding, lifelong career,” said Major Harry McCann, director of GPTC’s Law Enforcement Academy. “It is an indescribable feeling for somebody who you have arrested to come back later and say, ‘Thank you–you saved my life,’” he said. “I cannot imagine doing anything else with my life. Nothing else compares to the service that law enforcement officers provide,” McCann stated.
Approximately 17 agencies will be present at the career fair, including representatives from the Conyers Police Department, Lawrenceville Police Department, Athens-Clarke County Police Department and Social Circle Police Department. Representatives from the FBI and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources are also planning to attend.
Applications are being accepted now for classes beginning January 4, 2016. Prospective students are encouraged to apply early due to the extended selection process. Please visit www.gptc.edu/lea
