EDMOND, Oklahoma -

The city of Edmond prides itself on having one of the lowest crime rates in the state, but now their police department is looking for new recruits and they say not as many people are applying for the job.

Edmond Police tell News 9 they've had 42 people apply for the six open spots on their squad. And they say that's way down from years past. If you've ever dreamed of being a police officer, or know someone who does, this could be your big chance.

Here's what Edmond Police are looking for in their applicants: You have to be at least 21 years of age. You must have completed at least 60 hours of college credit, but do not need a bachelor's or master's degree. And you must fill out the 36 page applications form for the job.

Chosen applicants will have to attend the department's 19-Week police academy in November.

"The Edmond Police Department is looking for the best qualified applicant, doesn't matter if they are 21 or 45 years old," said police officer Randy Payne.
