Minority Recruitment Manual for Ohio Peace Officers.
Snarr, Richard W.; McCauley, R. Paul
An overview of minority recruitment problems, laws, and experiences with American law enforcement personnel is provided in this manual. Potential areas of discrimination in the law enforcement personnel system are investigated. The mechanics of career development are addressed in order to demonstrate its importance in recruitment and especially in minority recruitment. The answers to two questions are sought: "Why should I join your department?" and "What kind of career will I have in the department?" The need for long range planning of minority recruitment programs is examined. The role of evaluation in the assessment of the success of these programs is discussed. The results of a survey of minority peace officers in Ohio are provided. (Author/MC)
