HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - The police department in Huntsville is looking for promising new recruits.

Al.com reports (https://bit.ly/VTOV6n ) the city is accepting applications through July 31 for its next police academy class. City Administrator John Hamilton couldn’t say exactly how new officers Huntsville plans to hire, but past academies have included roughly 20 to 30 cadets.

Hamilton says Huntsville officials are also looking for a diverse class of recruits. The city’s last police academy class had just three black cadets.

Recruits need to be U.S. citizens who are high-school graduates and at least 20 years old. The starting salary for a Huntsville police officer is $38,188.
