“There’s a type of people that really want this job and they understand dangers, but they want to go out there and do something bigger and better than themselves,” said Avitia.
This trend seems to show no signs of slowing down.
“I think the employment opportunities for both long term and short term are going to be outstanding,” said Quimby.
In Grand Junction, that academy has graduated around 400 students since they opened about 10 years ago. Colorado Springs is also hoping to hire 48 officers every eight months until 2020 because of their growing population in the city.
