MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

The city of Moultrie needs police officers and firefighters to keep the community safe. 

Right now, the city is down six police officers and six firefighters.

This is the largest deficit Human Resources Director Dale Williams has seen in his 27 years on the job.

Williams said he believes new job opportunities in neighboring communities are what's causing the shortage. 

"There was a period of time when communities grew their own. Kids grew up in the communities wanting to be policemen and firefighters. But now they're extremely mobile and they don't stay in one place long," said Human Resources Director, Dale Williams.

To apply for one of these public safety positions, visit the Georgia Department of Labor website.
