Steubenville Police looking to fill positions with civil service exam


STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (WTRF) – If you’re looking to get into law enforcement, now is your chance.  
The Steubenville Police Department is looking to fill key positions.

They have three vacancies on the department right now and once they fill those they will be back at full capacity. Their department has 41 officers in a number of different fields.

City Manager James Mavromatis said what makes this department a great place to work is that the people.. back their police officers. He also feels it’s a great place to live as well and getting into the SPD creates a lot of opportunities for their future.

Not just a patrol officer but you can go into detectives. You can go into narcotics. We have dog handlers and more recently now we’re going to have drone operators. It won’t be their primary duty. It will be a collateral duty, but it gives some diversity to the job it’s self.
