Never fails to amaze me "semi-skilled"... But that is the description the City assigns. This group has come a long way and is working hard to maintain a professional image. Their shelter used to be a concrete building at the old airport. I have seen dungeons (Real ones) that were more inviting. The city built a new shelter, bought new vehicles, and is working on providing training for their staff. Despite the low salary, it's worth a look!

I'm not sure I'd like a semi-skilled person carrying a firearm in my jurisdiction !!
