SPD Signs on for U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS)

Today the Seattle Police Department and the U.S. Army held a signing ceremony to demonstrate support for the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS). This program is part of a long-term U.S. Army effort to help soldiers forge professional relationships with organizations outside the military and encourage them to look to the Army as a plentiful and reliable recruiting source. PaYS is just one of the many programs the SPD Human Resources and Recruiting Unit works with to grow the Department to meet the needs of our growing city.

“This a wonderful way to provide opportunities to those who have served our country and now want to continue that dedication of service whether sworn or civilian at the local level here at the Seattle Police Department,” said Police Chief Carmen Best.

Since PaYS began in 2000, more than 500 employers have partnered with the program.
