Conference on Assessment Centers and Selection Issues

Conference on Assessment Centers and Selection Issues September 27-28, 2004 Sheraton Suites Alexandria, VA Every professional police and public safety organization faces the challenge of developing methods of evaluating candidates for leadership positions that are fair, that are efficient and cost-effective, and that identify job-related skills and abilities. At the same time, agencies must develop procedures that meet professional guidelines regarding selection, that are valid and reliable, and that have been successfully defended when challenged in court. More and more, agencies are using the assessment center method, a proven technique in identifying the most qualified supervisors, mid-level managers, and senior police administrators. This conference will explore the many facets of assessment centers, from job analysis to exercise development, from technology to administration. Individuals responsible for selecting, promoting, or training professionals will benefit from this conference, whether they are novices, experts, or somewhere in-between. This conference offers attendees the opportunity to participate in hands-on workshops and to network with top professionals and attendees from around the country.
