Cruz hosts Philadelphia police officer recruitment event

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 28 – State Rep. Angel Cruz, D-Phila., said more than a dozen people attended his event designed to provide information for people interested in becoming a Philadelphia police officer.

Cruz hosted representatives from the police department in his district office for the recruitment drive. Those in attendance had the opportunity to ask questions and learn about the process of becoming a Philadelphia police officer.

Cruz said he is seeing positive results from hosting this event.

“A constituent who attended my last recruitment drive informed me that he was hired and is starting the police academy next month. He came to this event to personally thank me,” Cruz said. “It makes me proud to see this outcome and I hope the opportunity opens for more people.”

Cruz added he plans to partner with the Philadelphia Police Department to host more recruitment events in the future.
