      4) "Law Enforcement Expo" on October 14 Showcases Exciting Career
      Opportunities in the MPDC

      Entry-level testing, exhibits featured during event outside Police
      Headquarters

      With the goal of hiring several hundred new officers over the next 12
      months, the Metropolitan Police Department kicks off its fiscal year
      2007 recruiting season on October 14 with a day-long "Law Enforcement
      Expo" outside Police Headquarters in Northwest.

      Recruiters will be on hand to discuss the range of career opportunities
      in the MPDC for both entry-level candidates and experienced officers
      from other agencies who are interested in joining through the
      lateral-hire program. Interested applicants can complete application
      forms and take the written police test on-site at the Expo. Applications
      will also be accepted for various civilian positions in the MPDC.
