ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - The Elizabethtown Police Department is on a "recruiting blitz" to find to new officers in the wake of a spate of retirements.

To qualify you must be at least 21 years old with no prior felony convictions.

Officer Virgil Willoughby said they are looking for officers who are "service minded."

"We can teach you to shoot a gun. We can teach you to drive a car," he said. "But we cannot teach you right or wrong. That's got to be instilled from day one."

You can find an application on their website.
