Clovis Police Needed

An all-to-familiar cry is being sounded in eastern New Mexico, a need for police officers. 

The Clovis Police Department is struggling to fill seven slots, most of which are entry level patrol officers. 

The vacancies often result in longer shifts for other officers and a cutback in non-essential services. 

The shortage means school resource officers will spend one day less in the schools in order to keep personnel on the streets. 

The department spokesperson says pay is a factor, but also the profession may have lost some of it's luster.
