Help Wanted: Cheap, Reliable Convention Security. Apply Within.
Good help may be hard to find, but when it comes to security staff for this summer’s national political conventions, it’s apparently just this side of invisible. Both host cities—Denver, the site of the Dems’ confab, and St. Paul, where the GOP will gather—are looking to neighboring communities to pony up some officers to help local police patrol the streets. But according to two of our sister sites, Colorado may have too many bad cops, while Minnesota can’t find enough good ones. Interested potential applicants can consult Colorado Independent and Minnesota Independent for more details. Serious inquiries only, please.
