Drury Law Enforcement Academy to Host Career Fair and Test Day


Drury University will host law enforcement from across the region for a job fair and hiring mix on March 19.

The event is from noon to 6 p.m. Anyone interested in a career in law enforcement, lateral applicants looking to move agencies, or anyone pursuing a career in criminal justice are encouraged to attend. Representatives from over 20 agencies in Missouri, Arkansas and Kansas are expected.

Prior to the job fair, Drury University Law Enforcement Academy staff will distribute and proctor the Missouri Chiefs of Police standardized written exam and physical agility test. Participation is not mandatory and participants can choose to take both portions or just one. The tests are free and will start at 8:00 a.m.

“There is a lot of value in this event for anyone with an interest in criminal justice or law enforcement,” said Tony Bowers, director of the Drury University Law Enforcement Academy. “Participants will have the opportunity to network and engage one-on-one with multiple agencies in one place. And for those who decide to participate in the testing process, they can then present those results to the agencies present for comment or submission.

Advance registration is mandatory for those wishing to participate in the tests.

Additionally, law enforcement professionals, or their dependents, wishing to earn their associate’s or bachelor’s degree can do so through Drury GO’s Badge to Bachelors program. “Drury University appreciates the sacrifices made by law enforcement officers and their families. We look forward to meeting with officers and their families to learn how our Badge to Bachelors initiative can help them further their education through seated classes. and/or online,” according to Houston campus coordinator Karen James.
