Recruit to lead
Police organizations are increasingly competing with other sectors for new recruits to deliver policing services that meet the changing needs of their communities. Moreover, services must retain their people to ensure they are positioned to succeed. Hear an outstanding leaders panel discuss the marketing of policing: the Constable Selection System, recruitment, hiring and retention of police members, and the need for a broad strategy for promoting policing as a career option and profession.
