Akron needs more police officers but they will only hire enough to replace the ones that are retiring or that old Donny boy fires. APD is very under staffed. The police are complaining about it all of the time. No kick backs here for old Donny boy so he doesn't consider it an important issue. I still think that old Donny boy should work as a cop for a month. Maybe then he would have a little more respect for the APD.
He's too busy getting drunk to, no pun intended, don a uniform.

License? Drivers license? I guess that eliminates 50% of the blacks males in this city... Good luck!

Sorry but the city isn't able to offer any special help to minorities anymore, and the only minorities ever offered consideration were African-Americans. That ended a few years back.

My husband is applying again. He is still in the military. He passed the agility test and civil service but wasn't hired the last time. He had more experience in this field than anyone they hired. I don't understand it. He still wants to be a cop after all the bs lately. All we need now is new upper management for the city.
I'm not saying APD is guilty of it but you know the old saying...it's not what you know, it's who you know. Good luck to your husband.
