African-American PR Firm, CD Global Strategies Group, shares lessons learned with police departments to recruit qualified & diverse police officers


African-American PR Firm Helps Police Increase Recruitment & Diversity One Department at a Time.

Washington, DC based public relations firm, CD Global Strategies Group, shares lessons learned with police departments to recruit qualified & diverse officers.

This week, CD Global Strategies Group (CDGS) shared lessons learned from its work with police departments across the United States to increase recruitment of women and minorities in PoliceOne, the leading online resource on news, trends, and training for police officers and departments. The article, "7 Q’s to ask before hiring a police recruitment consultant," is a part of the special PoliceOne series, “Recruitment & Retention Crisis: The Struggle to Hire – and Keep – Good Cops,” which takes an in-depth look at the recruitment and retention challenges police agencies currently face, and potential solutions to the crisis.

“There are common misperceptions about promoting diversity – notably that this promotion is in exchange for quality of applicants,” advised Calvin Dark and Rasheedah Thomas, CDGS principals and authors of the article. “Being able to effectively communicate the importance of diversity will help your existing force better understand and partner with the communities they serve.”

In the article, Dark and Thomas drew on their experiences working with small to large law enforcement agencies around the country to highlight six questions they recommend that police departments ask themselves when hiring a recruitment consultant:

What type of recruitment consultant should we look for?

What exactly can they do to help us?

How much will this cost?

How long should our contract with this consultant last?

Where should my recruitment consultant be located?

Does everyone in the department need to know we are doing this?

How will we know we’re successful and that it was worth the money?

The CDGS article is available at https://www.policeone.com/recruitment-retention-crisis/articles/462....
