PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Want to fight crime? Because the Pittsfield Police Department is looking for candidates to join the force.
 
The department is holding a recruitment expo on Tuesday at Taconic High School to answer questions and demonstrate equipment for those who may be thinking of entering the profession. The expo is being held in anticipation of the next Civil Service test for police officers.
 
The department has been hiring over the last few years as it looks to expand its ranks. The last test was done in 2017 and to get more candidates the department has suspended its residency requirement.

The deadline for registering for the exam, which costs $100, is Feb. 5.  Candidates must be at least 19 years of age on or before March 23 to be eligible to take the exam, yet must reach age 21 to be appointed.
 
Tuesday's expo will also provide potential recruits with information on the application, hiring, and training process. Representatives from various specialty units will be on hand.
 
The demonstrations begin at 4 p.m. followed by a presentation at 6 on the hiring and training process.
