    Hi all,

    Just wanted to give a heads up that we are hiring at Branson. It is a small town that is really hopping! Lots of calls around 8 million visitors a year so we see our share.

    I really like the way the city has treated me and my family.

    You can look at www.cityofbranson.org

    Submitted my app recently. I've been going to that area for short vacations for over 20 years now. I love it out there.

    Yep sure on the numbers. Just check out the City's website. They have all the info on there.

    Believe me, one trip here, enjoying the traffic and you would see

    I had no idea until I moved here.

    Obviously you have never been down there before during season.....buses, cars, vans, RVs, etc....lined up for miles down the main drag of town trying to get to the show venues.

    I've been down there for two LEO conferences and we always had them off-season to avoid the madness....

    When we are full staff, on overlap we will run 12-15 officers, and it is nothing to be down 9 reports each at the end of a shift.

    It is a very unique place to work.

    In August we have a car cruise where nearly 80,000 people line the streets. We borrow officers from all over. It is actually a nightmare to have to work.

    We have 47 sworn....... even though the town has less than 7k people living here, we have nearly 300 motels. Makes for a lot of travelling dirtbags sometimes.

    That's one of the big attractions there along with a ton of theaters that show comedy, magic, and music shows. There are a couple big lakes there so all the water sports are big, fishing, hunting, etc. For those that love the outdoors, it's a great place. www.basspro.com shops is out that way too, a mecca to hunters and fishermen.

    A city guy would probably be miserable lol.
