“It’s a new age,” Wolski said. “The bulk of our applications came through electronic media.” He said they received applicants from Alaska, California, Miami, Florida and “all points in between.” He also said he got a fair share of viable local candidates.

The department’s Facebook page has more than 4,500 followers and admins post multiple times a day with engaging posts including a reoccurring “Today’s Good News” post and wall posts that ask for tips from the community in tracking down missing people and criminals.
