Civilian Personnel

Policy Center Resource

The efficiency and effectiveness of law enforcement agencies is enhanced when sworn and non-sworn personnel are appropriately used to perform those functions that are best suited to their special knowledge, skills and abilities. Therefore, agencies are encouraged to employ civilians for selected functions that do not require the authority of a commissioned officer, there – by freeing sworn personnel for enforcement functions and capitalizing upon the talents of all employees.

These documents outline law enforcement's commitment to and procedures for hiring and using civilian personnel.
