On Sunday, May 15, the Hollister Police Department will hold a physical ability practice and information day for people interested in a career in law enforcement. 

The Hollister Police Department would like to invite those who are interested in a career in law enforcement to meet its officers and discuss what it takes to work in this field. Recruitment staff will be able to answer questions in how to prepare mentally and physically for joining this rewarding profession.
