WEIRTON, W.Va. (WTRF) — The Weirton Police Department is hiring once again!

They are looking for probationary police officers to replace a few of their potential upcoming retirees.

Chief Charlie Kush says these are good jobs with competitive pay and good benefits.

The department has a lot of opportunities for officers to dive into throughout their career from their detective division to SRT, to SROs and soon the officers will be assigned take-home cruisers.

“This is a unique area, where we have a lot of support but we are also a very busy police department. We have a variety of calls. We have a patrol division, a detective division, so there’s a lot of opportunities here for anybody. Our guys do a great job. The citizens of Weirton really support us. So I believe it’s a good opportunity for anybody wanting to get into law enforcement.”
