Police Officer Recruitment and Retention

The Chillicothe Police Department is working with city hall on developing a Police Officer Recruitment program.  Chief Jon Maples asked the City Council to consider a program that would reimburse new and current officers, up to $4000 of the cost of attending the Police Academy.

City Administrator Darin Chappell says they are also trying to keep a well-trained department.

Chappell says the reimbursement plan is a starting point.

The City Attorney will bring more information to the council at their next meeting.
