Georgia Piedmont Technical College will host a career fair for aspiring deputies and officers from 9 a.m. until noon at its Law Enforcement Academy in Covington Monday.

Approximately 17 agencies will be present at the career fair, including representatives from the Conyers Police Department, Lawrenceville Police Department, Athens-Clarke County Police Department and Social Circle Police Department. Representatives from the FBI and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources are also planning to attend.

“A career in law enforcement is a rewarding, life-long career,” said Major Harry McCann, director of GPTC’s Law Enforcement Academy. “It is an indescribable feeling for somebody who you have arrested to come back later and say, ‘Thank you — you saved my life,’” he said. “I cannot imagine doing anything else with my life. Nothing else compares to the service that law enforcement officers provide,” McCann stated.

Applications are being accepted now for classes beginning Jan. 4, 2016. You can apply early due to extended selection process at
