ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Rochester Police Department wants you to join the ranks as RPD deals with a staffing shortage.

The department is currently down more than 90 officers and that can affect day-to-day operations.

Mike Mazzeo, former president of Locust Club, officially retires

That’s why the police recruiting team is out spreading the word about the next civil service exam scheduled for March 2. The application deadline is coming up first on February 9.

Two of the recruiters stopped by Sunrise to highlight what it means to be an officer in an interview with anchor Brennan Somers.

“I grew up in Rochester and said I want to help people and I want to give back to my community,” Officer Michelle Calderon explained. “But as I’ve grown in my career I also want to see change in our communities, in our department, and the only way to do that is to come have a seat at the table.”

As for pay and benefits, you can earn a six-figure salary in just three and half years, get tuition reimbursement, and be in the 20-year pension plan.
