Chester City Police will be bringing a new set of hands to patrol the streets, according to a recent announcement on Facebook.

Interested? If you’re a United States citizen, at least 21-years-old, possess a valid driver’s license and have a high school diploma or GED, you could wind up behind the wheel of a Chester City Police cruiser.

Anyone interested in the position can pick up an application at the Office of the City Clerk, City Hall, 1 Fourth Street, Chester, PA 19013, beginning April 2, 2018 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday.

A non-refundable processing fee of $35 by cashier’s check or money order payable to the City of Chester is required at the time of obtaining the application.

Applicants must pass a physical agility test scheduled for April 28 followed by a written civil service test on May 4.

The only catch .. applicants residing outside of the City of Chester must establish residency within three months of date of hire.

Chester, a former industrial hub, lost a quarter of its police, including veterans, to cost-cutting retirements and resignations last year, under pressure from state overseers, according to Philly.com.

As a result, the Pennsylvania State Police helped bolster the city streets throughout 2017, providing manpower and assistance to the citizens and officers of the City of Chester.
