Flores, Norma Landa
To help Hispanic Americans wishing to enroll in the Santa Ana (California) Police Department, this paper presents an Advancement of Ethnic Representation Opportunities (AERO) Police Success Communication Skills Competency Based lesson that focuses on expressing ethical values during police oral interviews. After providing background information on what prompted the development of the lesson, the paper presents student handouts and evaluation forms. Next, the paper provides instructional material that discusses researching, preparing, and participating in police oral interview panels, and then discusses student-conducted mock interviews, following which, a presentation on how to prepare for governmental oral interviews, and the results of mock oral interviews with the police department are provided. The paper concludes with a recommendation for the establishment of standard, competency-based criteria for evaluating oral job-interviewing interactions in order to end bias in governmental job selection processes. A Project AERO figure is included and 15 references are attached. (RS)
