The Hawaii County Police Department is looking for a few good men and women to act as volunteer disabled parking enforcement officers.

Interested applicants will be subject to a screening process consisting of a character appraisal, background check and interview. Successful applicants will also undergo a short training course.

The recruitment period will continue through Friday, July 5, 2002. Application packets may be picked up at the Traffic Services Section at the Hilo police station, 349 Kapiolani Street, or the Kona police station in Kealakehe.

For more information, call Sergeant Apele at 961-2305.
