Recruiting for Law Enforcement Agencies


Anyone who is involved or supervises recruiting for their agency including sworn officers, civilians, human resources or anyone wanting a better knowledge of the recruiting process.

With the intense focus on law enforcement, personnel recruiting efforts must be targeted and professionally managed. Many law enforcement agencies struggle with recruiting for sworn and non-sworn personnel alike. Budgetary allocations for recruitment efforts are often limited and many agencies have little or no recruiting plan.

Proper recruiting efforts will strengthen a law enforcement agency by providing quality applicants for an organization to choose from. Recruiting efforts will also enhance the ability for adverse work force by reaching all segments of the population.

Participants will learn the importance of not only recruiting but also retention of quality personnel. An organizational assessment should be the first step in the process and the need to break the cycle of mediocrity. A sample recruiting plan will be provided.

Topics include:

  •  The importance of a recruiting plan
  •  Assessment of you organization
  •  Organization wellness
  •  What type of employees do you want
  •  Marketing and selling your organization
  •  How to recruit for diversity
  •  Suggestions to apply recruiting efforts
