 CHARLOTTE, NC — CMPD, Charlotte Fire and MEDIC want to meet anyone interested in public service.  

The three groups held an open house Thursday hoping to recruit Charlotte’s next generation of police officers, firefighters and emergency personnel.  CMPD says its goal is to find people focused on helping the community.

“We’re looking for people who want to serve, people who want to be a part of this community and serve this great community here in Charlotte. ” said CMPD Captain Stella Patterson.  “For us here at CMPD, it’s important to have people who can represent the community well.”

CMPD says it’s also looking to recruit more women and minorities to the force.
