Law enforcement agencies across the country are facing unprecedented recruitment challenges. While all differ in size and the communities they serve, each could benefit by following a few best practices.

If officers don't see a chance to learn new skills and move up in the ranks, they may begin looking for employment elsewhere.

Another tip is to emphasize training. Departments must offer a solid curriculum that focuses on the core skills needed to protect and serve today's citizens. Certain skill sets officers possess may be beneficial to the department and may maintain their interest in that arena.

Public safety workforce management software can be a great way to centralize the management of new hires and track each officer's operational performance throughout their career tenure. By using one solution to manage officer activities, the likelihood of retaining the best of the best certainly increases.
