The Smart Policing Initiative, in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance, released the “Blueprint for Law Enforcement Recruitment and Retention in the 21st Century: Principles for a Comprehensive Recruiting, Hiring, promotion and retention.
The Blueprint includes four principles and associated strategies for organizations to consider when dealing with police recruitment and retention, including:
- Effective and equitable approaches to expanding the pool of officer candidates;
- Identification of the best candidates during pre-selection and selection;
- Retention of officers who reflect agency and community values with accountability and promotion processes; and
- Development of officer wellness systems to better serve officers and communities.
The document is based on the proceedings of a 2022 BJA meeting on the topic, contemporary research, best practices, federal executive orders, and consent decrees related to the topic. Collectively, these sources provide a comprehensive perspective on contemporary recruitment and retention issues and offer data-driven guidance for future action.
