Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. The Brooklyn Park Police Department does not reflect the diversity of the community, with few officers of color, particularly African American officers. Drawing on a review of literature, an assessment of current recruitment efforts and departmental values in the Brooklyn Park Police Department, and an analysis of characteristics that define successful police candidates, students in Dr. Deniz Ones’ Staffing and Personnel Selection class identified strategies to increase officer diversity within the department. The students’ final report is available.
Report completed by students enrolled in PSY 5701: Staffing and Personnel Selection, taught by Deniz Ones in spring 2017.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative, course-based projects. RCP is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA). More information at http://www.rcp.umn.edu.
