(QCOSTARICA) How would like to work pro bono as traffic cop in Costa Rica? With the objective of increasing the size of the police force and due to budget constrains, the Policia de Transito (Traffic Police) will be recruiting between 25 and 40 officials this year, working pro bono.

The “Ad Honorem” officials will have the power to write out traffic tickets, regulate traffic and assist at traffic accidents, among other functions, after completing a 290 hour training course.

The law allows these officials to work alongside full-time, salaried officials in applying the country’s traffic laws.

Among the recent graduates are retired and business people donating their time to work on the roads.

Before they can take the training course, potential officials have to undergo psychometric and psychological tests, have no criminal record and certify they have a “legitimate” source of income.
