Albany-- The Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany is looking to civilians to fill more than sixty positions for a civilian police department.

The move is being made to free up more military police to be deployed in the war on terror. MCLB-Albany says the move may take a little more than a year to complete. Seven new hires have already been made. Six of them are former Marines.

The civilians hired will go through a police academy in Albany. The new police force will enforce traffic laws, work the bases gates and maintain general order on the base.

Pay for the officers will be based on experience. The minimum starting salary for the civilian police force workers will be twenty-two thousand five-hundred dollars.
