We have room for you.

In the largest monthly layoff toll since January 2002, U.S. companies cut 181,671 jobs in November, a 61% increase over October, according to research released Wednesday. Industry watchers expect as the holiday season continues that employers will be looking to further downsize in preparation for a lean new year. Challenger, Gray & Christmas reported the number of positions cut in November is the highest since January 2002, when companies were struggling to recover in the wake of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The total number of jobs cut in November not only outpaced previous months this year, but also represents a 148% increase over the same month last year. "November represents the largest job-cut month since employers announced a record 248,475 planned layoffs in January 2002," Challenger, Gray & Christmas wrote in a statement.

Unfortunately there is always going to be crime of some sort and there will always be a need for police officers. Are looking for a secure, exciting and challenging career?

We will be hiring almost 1000 police officers in the next several years. Come and be part of a winning team. You will love HPD. I have loved it for over 26 years!

Officer McCoy is right. If you are looking for an exciting job, join the Houston Police Dept. For those of you who don't know, Texas has one of the best economies in the country. Also, HPD really takes care of its officers. I have done the research and I know this for a fact. Don't take my word for it. Find out for yourself. Join the HPD today!!!!

I currently live in Michigan, which probably has one of the worst economies now in the county, and I went through the academy (pre-service) here in Michigan. The competition for the jobs is huge here so I have not landed one of the few jobs available here. I am seriously considering putting in for HPD. The benefits look great and the department also looks great. The job market is tight here in Michigan and I had to pretty much stop being employed to go through our academy here which you have to pay for out of your pocket and take the risk of getting a job. I took that risk and now am not employed. With HPD hiring so many people I am going to try. Does anyone know if HPD plans on coming back to the Detroit or Chicago area in January or February?
Good luck to the current classes!
