SCMPD has job openings

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Chief Willie Lovett has a few openings in the payroll. He talked with WTOC earlier on Tuesday. He said that because there's a few vacant spots on the force, doesn't mean the public's safety is at risk.

"I think right now somewhere around 38, and you know, putting that in perspective, we have a little over 600 police officers. So don't get alarmed by saying 38 like that, like we're extremely short, that's simply not the case," Lovett said.
