I am an officer from a jurisdiction out of the area, been an officer for about 20 years. I have been keeping up with the PGPD situation and received information the town was hiring all new officers. I was thinking about applying but I don't know the area or the people. All I see on here is bad publicity about the town/council/ etc. My question is if I should even apply for a position there?

Thank you. I agree, new blood may be a good idea. It is the same way here. No matter what happens, or how hard you try, the "good ol boys" syndrome sometimes sneaks in. Thanks again, believe I will apply

Someone from out of town needs to apply for this position! Don't judge the entire area by some who have problems. Whomever is hired, cannot be a yes man, and must answer to the sheriff, not the mayor or town council. Random drug screens for all officers at any given time. Next, impeach the mayor, and all the council. The proof appeared whenever one was tipped off by the mayor & I believe the town council were also aware. We need to clean our town, streets, up the right way.

County and state cops are welcomed in wooday. Boss hog knows to keep his cops in town. We carry shotguns and 44 mags in wooday. We know how to use them and people disappear.
