Odessa - The Odessa Police Department is actively recruiting employees for every department.
Today CBS 7 got a look inside one of the police academy classes.
This group graduates in a few weeks, but another class starts in January. There are 12 spots still open.
Another area in need of employees, school crossing guards.
"Anytime a school crossing guard calls in for any given location we already man, a police officer has to go and cover it,” traffic Sgt. David Lara said. “That takes one of our officers off the streets to try and man that location."
Other areas in need are the Crime Scene Unit and dispatch.
