policeblotter_sfa.jpgHey law enforcement enthusiasts, ever wanted to serve alongside the fine folks of the SFPD? Maybe you can: starting today, SFPD is looking to hire one entry-level police officer.

Duties would include promoting public safety and security, preventing crime and enforcing the law as well as a variety of other tasks. As SFPD’s press release says, “Police Officers performs a number of essential functions.”

And, as the Bay Area Reporter notes, “LGBT individuals are strongly encouraged to apply.” SF’s police force has an estimated 250 to 300 LGBTQ officers, officer Jennifer Thompson, liaison to the LGBTQ community, tells the BAR.

Whether you’re interested in preventing and detecting crime or simply sporting a nifty badge and fly uniform, head to www.jobaps.com/sf and create an applicant account immediately.

The virtual doors opened at 8 AM today, and will close after SFPD receives 2500 applications, so don’t delay. Good luck, and don’t forget the Appeal when you’re walking your beat — we can always use more pals on the force.
