Oregon's Public Safety Career Fair Looks to Fill 500 Vacancies - 03/22/17

The Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) is pleased to host the 2017 Oregon Public Safety Career Fair at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem (4190 Aumsville Highway SE) on Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1, 2017 in partnership with Oregon Association of Chiefs of Police, Oregon State Sheriffs Association, and the Oregon Peace Officers Association. More than four dozen city, county, state, tribal and federal agencies are participating and we have created the attached flyer for the event that will give more details.

Our message is simple, today agencies around the state are looking to hire more than 500 qualified employees to fill both sworn (police, corrections, parole and probation, fire-rescue, emergency communications) and non-sworn (analysts, chemists, nurses, CSI, etc.) positions at city, county, state, tribal, university and federal law enforcement agencies.

Equally important retirement data shows that many more seasoned public safety professionals are getting ready to retire and over the next two years and agencies will be looking to fill approximately 1,000 positions statewide. You will see that on each day we will also offer tours of the Oregon Public Safety Academy and also offer break-out sessions that cover some specific topics such as women in public safety, veterans in public safety, and others.

We ask that you please share this flyer with anyone who may be interested in a career in public safety.
