The Las Vegas Police Department is looking to fill three officer positions.
The department starts out at $15 an hour for certified officers, which Police Chief Gary Gold said makes the local agency one of the highest-paying in northern New Mexico.
The department will offer higher pay to officers with more experience, as is called for under a pay plan.
Gold said the department is short manpower because a number of officers are taking leave for such things as injuries and the military.
For more information on the positions, call Gold or Capt. Eugene Garcia at the Police Department at 425-7504.
