Recognizing the potential of recruiting qualified candidates throughout the country, the Alpharetta Police Department will be traveling to Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey on July 6th to provide a unique opportunity for candidates to perform the physical agility test and complete the interview process.

In early July, members from the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety will be traveling to New Jersey to host the agency’s first out-of-state recruitment event for police officers. This initiative, proposed earlier this year by an internal agency focus group, seeks to enhance recruiting efforts by expanding focus into the Tri-State area.

“Law enforcement today faces several unique hurdles, among them being fewer interested applicants and competition between metro Atlanta agencies for those applicants,” said Captain Jakai Braithwaite, who oversees the agency’s recruitment and hiring functions. During the process, applicants can participate in several steps of the hiring process, including the State of Georgia’s standard physical agility test and virtual panel interviews.

“In order to find the best candidates for our community, we need to expand our efforts to include areas outside the local metropolitan area,” said Captain Braithwaite. The recruitment event will be held at the Hasbrouck Heights High School in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey from July 7 to July 8.
