The Hoboken Community and Public
By John Heinis/Hudson County View
The forum will be held on Thursday, May 18th, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the senior room of the Multi-Service Center, located at 124 Grand St.
The event will feature representatives from the City’s Police Department, Fire Department, Office of Emergency Management, EMS, and others.
The city and Public Safety Department host the CAPS Forum every other month in different locations as a way for the public to meet and engage with public safety officials and learn more about public safety best practices through a casual setting.
This month’s CAPS forum will also include a job and volunteer expo, meaning that residents of all ages are invited to learn about employment and volunteer opportunities in the Hoboken public safety sector.
Experts will discuss what opportunities are currently available and/or may become available, latest trends in public safety employment, what is involved in working in these fields, and what it takes to become a member of the public safety team.
Applications for some open positions will be available.
Opportunities to be discussed include police officers, firefighters, OEM deputies, paid EMTs and volunteer EMS, crossing guards, communications traffic control officers, dispatchers, and CERT volunteers, among other things.
Additionally, the event may be of particular interest to anyone interested in areas of law enforcement, emergency management, criminal justice, public service, and healthcare.
Refreshments will be provided courtesy of the police department and the Division of Senior Services.
