The Bakersfield Police Department is holding information sessions for anyone interested in becoming a police officer.

At the sessions they will receive firsthand information from a current police officer as to the hiring process, minimum qualifications and what to expect in the academy. The BPD is hiring for police officer trainees with an anticipated academy next February.

The sessions will be held in Dorothy Donahoe Hall at Cal State Bakersfield 4-5:15 p.m. Thursday and noon to 1:15 p.m. Friday.
