Attracting great candidates from diverse backgrounds is crucial to building law enforcement agencies that can serve communities effectively and build trust among residents. To make an impact today, many agencies are in need of a different set of solutions that can correctly identify and convert latent interest from prospective applicants. In this webinar, presenters will share the results of empirical studies with 21 U.S. jurisdictions to understand the motivations of those currently in the police force and to apply lessons from the science of human decision-making to the process of attracting and recruiting new police officers. From deciding to express interest in a job to showing up for testing to assessing candidates fairly, the recruitment process involves a number of decision points that can make or break successful hiring.
