Are you a people oriented person? Do you have great customer service skills?  Do you enjoy working in a close knit work environment?  If the answer to those questions is yes, then the Eagle River Police Department is looking for you, well, not in a bad way but we’d sure like to have you fill out a job application! 


We are now accepting applications to fill a part-time Law Enforcement Clerk position.  The position is 20.75 hours per week with a usual schedule of Monday through Wednesday 8:00AM to 12:15PM and Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.


The position starts at $12.50 an hour with an increase to $13.00 an hour after a 6 month probation period.


There are a few qualifications that need to be met in order to be considered for the position.  First of all you need to be a US Citizen, possess a high school diploma and have some clerical or office setting experience.  Because there are security hoops we have to jump through, you can’t have a criminal record, you can’t have a restraining order against you and you have pass a background investigation.


Since this is an office position, you need to be able to work with typical office equipment and be comfortable working with computers and software programs like Microsoft Office.  You need to be able to type/keyboard; not with blazing fingers or anything but a moderate speed with accuracy.


Now we are the Cop Shop so you’re going to have to pass a drug test (like you didn’t see that coming) and be able to maintain confidentiality.  So if you’re the town gossip, this job probably isn’t for you.


Okay, so that’s about it.  Still interested?  Good.  So, what you need to do is submit a résumé and completed application by 4:00 P.M., Friday February 12th, 2016 to the Eagle River Police Department, Attention:  Chief Mark Vander Bloomen, PO Box 1269, Eagle River, Wisconsin  54521.
