Affirmative Action in Salt Lake's Criminal Justice Agencies.
Utah State Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
Utilizing guidelines provided by the United States Department of Justice and the Federal Government, the Utah Advisory Committee concludes in this report that all five criminal justice agencies it investigated in Salt Lake City and County are deficient in providing equal employment opportunity for women and minorities. Findings, recorded in tables and charts, indicate that: (1) in general, women and minorities are in low level positions; (2) no blacks or Native Americans were employed at any level in the court systems; (3) employees of the five criminal justice agencies demonstrated little awareness of the concept of equal employment opportunity; and (4) a recent reorganization of the city personnel system has initiated some actions to rectify the situation. Recommendations are made with regard to how the State legislature, the Federal government, and local administrative bodies can act to encourage implementation of a more effective affirmative action program.
