Hiring – Criminal Justice

Assignment Topic: Hiring in Criminal Justice

Subject: Criminology




Hiring in Criminal Justice. Law Enforcement Organizations face an increasing struggle with hiring police officers. Additionally, there is a need to consider assembling a police force that resembles the communities that are being served. An increase in focus on civil liberties, the rise to prominence of advocacy groups such as Black Lives Matter. And also police present in shootings have all it takes to create an urgency for law enforcement agencies to be responsive to the need for diversity within the force.  As the policy manager for your law enforcement organization, please research the best practices that relate to diversity hiring. Finally develop a department policy.
