Recruit Academies are back in Colorado Springs. For both Police and Fire a huge number of people want a spot.
Due to budget issues public safety recruiting has been on hold for several years. To fill positions left by retirement and attrition each agency will hold small academies.
For 25 positions with the police there are 790 applicants. The fire department has 22 positions and 1,763 applicants.
