Recruiting and retaining talented employees is at the top of every law enforcement leader’s priorities, including my own. Our employees are the foundation of our agency. A focused, deliberate policy in recruitment ensures we hire not only the best and brightest people but those who represent the diversity of the communities we serve. Critical to our department’s success is providing a working environment that promotes creativity, innovation, inclusiveness, job security, mentoring, and advancement opportunities. Retaining trained, experienced, committed, and tenured employees is and will always be one of my top priorities.
