Free and open to the public, the fair will be held at PBSC’s Public Safety Conference Center, room PSD 108, on the Lake Worth campus, 4200 Congress Ave.

It is the second annual job fair that PBSC has held in partnership with the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives(NOBLE). The Palm Beach County Association of Chiefs of Police also have joined the effort this year.
