Using Technology To Recruit Police Officers

Here’s a link to an article I collaborated with several of my peers. It addresses the challenges of recruiting quality candidates for police officer positions.

One of the challenges a police administrator faces is the ability to initiate an interest in policing to individuals who have the qualities that make a person a good police officer. That’s why I visit explorer conferences and often accompany our recruiters when they visit college campuses and recruiting fairs.

As the article states, we have to be savvy about the manner in which we reach an audience that have the potential to be good police officers. Recruiting and developing an interest in policing is a component of police administration that is often overlooked but is certainly a critical part of the job.
