The Pella Police Department has been looking for candidates for an open position for a new Police Officer. Pella Police Chief Robert Bokinsky says that they received 42 applications from people across Iowa and the surrounding area. 27 of those applicants were invited to Pella for testing. Bokinsky says that testing will likely be held in March. The testing includes written, physical, and psychological test. Bokinsky wants to find a candidate that will fit well in the community and says that the decision is one of the most important a Police Chief has to make.
