Across the nation, police officers are retiring faster than departments can recruit new members. The reason is that fewer and fewer young persons (21-30) do not show as much interest in these positions as the previous generation. In fact, some published literature suggests ways to make police positions more appealing to the new and current generation.
What selections and hiring approaches do you think would be most useful today in attracting criminal justice employees?
You may approach this question in one or two ways. One way is to research and review one or two of these articles, describe the main points, and comment on the ideas. Another more interesting approach is to review 5 or more current police job postings nationwide and see if any new or exciting benefits were added to attract new recruits. Look for common themes or benefits, and unique ones as well. Both methods can be incorporated as well, just make sure you address the primary question, “What selections and hiring approaches do you think would be most useful today in attracting criminal justice employees?”
