Jefferson City's Police Department is seeking to fill positions that have been open for almost a year. Several officers retired in 2013 and the department is still looking for deputies to replace them.

The city police board wants to hire 7 new police officers, and 61 people have applied for the jobs. The department is now down to the last 10 who best fit the requirements.
