We want you.

That well-publicized slogan on the Uncle Sam posters during World War II still applies. But this time it is the NC Department of Public Safety doing the recruiting and the agency is reaching out to military families.

NCDPS and the NC National Guard are hosting a one-day career event designed to match eager applicants with departmental jobs in law enforcement, corrections, emergency management, National Guard, the State Bureau of Investigation and more.

NCDPS Career Event
Thursday, March 1 9am – 2pm
Joint Force Headquarters, 1636 Gold Star Dr. Raleigh

Special sessions will be held at 9am and 11am with recommendations and tips about filling out state government applications. Employers from the various NCDPS divisions will be available throughout the event to network with applicants.

Registration is recommended; call 984-664-6463 or register online at NCNGEEC.com. While the event is open to any interested job seekers, the agency wants to be sure that military families are aware of the career day.

“Our military veterans and their families are very familiar with public safety and public service,” explained Secretary Erik Hooks. “Those core values are the heart of military service so it makes sense to extend those principles to jobs within DPS.”
