The Soldotna Police Department is expecting some new faces. Chief Peter Mlynarik…
Chief Mlynarik: “We have one vacancy in our regular commissioned officers and we had one position that’s being funded by a grant, so we are recruiting for two officers.”
Mlynarik said the grant-funded position is the same as a regularly commissioned officer, it’s just sponsored by the federal government.
One of the new recruits is a Soldotna man – he’s just graduated from the academy in Sitka – and the other has experience as a policeman in Nome and is just completing his physical.
