SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- San Diego's Fleet and Family Support Center hosted a job fair March 22 to provide information to active-duty and recently retired military personnel and their families about civilian career opportunities.

Seventy companies ranging from law enforcement agencies to accounting and computer information technology firms were represented at the fair.

"Most people who attend are recent retirees or (are soon departing) the military," said Fleet and Family Support Center Transition/Spouse Employment Specialist Laurie Lyford. "We want to make civilian employment opportunities more accessible and let the service members know how in-demand they are."

Officer William Outlaw of the San Bernadino, Calif., Police Department said military experience is important when transitioning to the law enforcement field.

"Of the 312 officers on the San Bernadino force, about 75 of them are prior military service," said Outlaw. "The leadership skills and experience you gain from the military is unparalleled, not only for a law enforcement job, but in any potential work environment."

The next job fair in San Diego is scheduled for Sept. 27.
