GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - Montrose Police Department will be holding an open house Saturday, Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The department is working on a new police building, which is being built around the current one. Once this new building is complete, it will make room for the department to expand. This new building is set to be completed in 2022.

The open house on Saturday will be free and open to the community. Anyone can come to look around or apply for a job.

The Montrose Police Department will be hiring 20 individuals interested in working for the department. The main focus is hiring more customer service representatives to help out with a civilian report, however other positions will be available.

If you plan on attending the event in hopes of a job opportunity, Chris Velasquez, Montrose Police Department Sergeant, advises applicants to treat the open house like a job fair and bring your resume. Interviews will be on the spot, and will be part-one of two interviews. The first interview will be held at the event itself, and the second will be set up after the event.

The open house will feature different police equipment, drones, robots, and more held at the Montrose Event Center, located at 1036 N 7th St. in Montrose, Colo.
