The City of Coral Gables is working hard to properly staff the Police Department and is in a constant hiring cycle − conducting an intensive recruitment effort to hire qualified police officers. Most recently, a Career Fair was held last Saturday to attract potential new recruits.
Despite the challenges that most police departments across the nation are facing to find the new generation of police officers, the City of Coral Gables places public safety as a top priority and is committed to fill police vacancies.
To improve transparency regarding the Police Department recruitment process, a new monthly report is available online at the following link. This comprehensive report details the number of police officers hired by budget year, the number of officers currently on leave, as well as applications received and the status of applications throughout the hiring process. This report will be updated every month.
