We are active participants in flattening the curve and appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Several groups combining to host Diversity Hiring Event in Beckley tomorrow

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – The city of Beckley will be holding a Diversity Hiring Event tomorrow.

The Beckley police and fire departments will both be participating and encouraging a diverse group of applicants to apply.

“Our police department has been awarded a grant to hire more officers,” said Dumas Psychology Collective Dr. Kristi Dumas. “We really want to make sure that those officers that are new hires are really reflective of the communities that they police.”

The Beckley Human Rights Commission is also heavily involved in the event.

“When you’re policed by persons that share more of your demographic, naturally, understanding should follow,” added Beckley City Councilman Robert Dunlap. “People will be more empathetic to the persons they’re policing.”

The event will be at East Beckley Police Substation tomorrow morning from 9-12, and then at the East Park Police Substation from 1-4 in the afternoon.
