BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The Bellingham Police Department is hiring.

Chief Cliff Cook says they are recruiting for two entry-level police officer positions to fill by the end of the year.

He hopes they can get as many applicants as possible.

The department has 110 commissioned officers.

Details on the qualifications and how to apply are on the City of Bellingham’s website.

Applications are due September 9.

The Washington State Patrol recently announced they are looking for new troopers.

About 300 troopers are needed, as dozens of troopers are expected to retire in the next five years.
