In the Book:
To build a diverse workforce, recruitment statement used in the past will no longer be sufficient and will not provide agencies with high-quality applicants. Agencies with maximum success in recruiting women and minorities have had specific goals. Objectives, and timetables in places; these policies must be established at the top level of the organization.
Commitment: Recruiting minority and women applicants, especially in highly competitive labor market, requires commitment and effort. Police executives must communicate that commitment to their recruiting staff and devote the resources necessary to achieve recruitment goals. This genuine commitment must be demonstrated both inside and outside the organization.
