WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The Winston-Salem Police Department is hoping to attract more 911 operators.
“We’ve sent our recruiters out to all of the high schools because for that specific position, you only have to be 18 and you just have to be at least a high school graduate,” said Sgt. Verron Chue, supervisor of the recruitment unit.
Over the last four months, the recruiting team has focused heavily on filling current vacancies.
The City of Winston-Salem is short 13 positions.
