              Getting Hired

• Diversity is a priority
  – Organizations such as PERF, DOJ and POST
    have cited this as a critical issue dating back to
    the 1960s
  – Research states many of the benefits are
    based more on stereotypes than on empirical
    evidence
  – Many of the benefits are based on the
    assumption of homogeneity among members
    of race and ethnic groups
              Getting Hired

• Diversity is a priority
  – Individuals entering into policing, regardless of
    race or ethnicity, may not necessarily be
    representative of inner city urban communities
