Recruiting & Hiring

Policy Center Resource

Hiring decisions are among the most impactful decisions a police agency can make. Agencies that want to build positive relationships with their communities, improve their public perception, and recruit more personnel will commit to a hiring process that embraces diversity and reflects community values.

The Considerations document outlines items that agencies should examine when developing their own policies on recruitment and hiring practices. The Concepts & Issues paper provides further context and explanation. This material may be of value to police in their efforts to develop their own policies for recruiting and hiring police officers.
