Police agencies are no strangers to budget tightening and may be unable to fill vacancies. Yet the public needs law enforcement to provide public safety regardless of constraints. If we have to do more with less, we must become skilled at hiring and retaining the best and ensuring that every employee knows how he or she is doing. This course explores four aspects of personnel management: recruiting the best talent, performing effective testing and interviewing, conducting thorough background investigations, and the best ways to retain high-quality employees.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to identify and attract talent from a diverse pool of applicants, ensure that every candidate is treated fairly throughout the hiring process, make recruiting a rewarding experience for candidates, verify that the application and screening processes are bias-free, and develop policies that protect the hiring process. Recruitment and Retention for Law Enforcement Agencies is designed for all certified law enforcement officers.
