Recruitment and Retention to Workforce Diversity Report Cover

The purpose of this guidebook is to provide the law enforcement field with information about existing resources for promoting workforce diversity through a variety of staffing mechanisms. It is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather to promote awareness of research and professional publications that may not have been visible or accessible to practitioners. Though limited, resources on this issue are growing, and this guidebook attempts to highlight publications that are unique, particularly insightful, or considered foundational. Most of these resources contain rich reference lists that will direct the reader to other literature on issues of interest.
