Following two uniquely tumultuous years for law enforcement, recruiting and retaining qualified officers is proving to be one of the most significant challenges facing law enforcement agencies across the country. These struggles are not new, as many agencies have seen a decline in qualified candidates as well as increased officer turnover dating back long before the nationwide unrest of 2020.

In this webinar, Attorney Matt Dolan will discuss some of the lessons learned by agencies across the country over the past two years when it comes to what is and is not working in the area of police recruiting.  The discussion will place a particular emphasis on:

  • Defining an acceptable rate of officer turnover and planning accordingly
  • The relationship between community engagement and long-term recruiting strategies
  • The role of local elected officials in attracting or repelling potential applicants
  • Embracing lateral hiring as a permanent part of recruiting 
  • Why hiring the wrong people today makes it harder to hire the right people tomorrow
