Police Officers Needed in Montreat

We are seeking Police Officers to Join Our Community!!

The Town of Montreat is seeking two police officers to join its respected and effective police force.

Montreat is situated in a cove of the Blue Ridge Mountains, approximately 15 miles outside Asheville. This small community of approximately 900 full time residents (including college students) is an idyllic mountain village, offering peace and respite to its residents and guests. It was founded in 1897 as a retreat center. It continues in that role hosting thousands during the year, but has grown into a residential community, vacation haven, home to Montreat College, a hiker’s paradise, and so much more.

Police protection is important to Montreators. It is a unique opportunity to practice community policing-getting to know residents, walking around the lake and being visible, and enjoying the mutual admiration between residents and the police force.

Two opportunities are available, one on day shift and the other on night shift.

Benefits include: insurance, vacation, separation allowance, longevity pay, and more!!!
