Recruitment/selection of diverse police officer candidates is a reality of modern-day policing. Pre-employment screenings of diverse candidate pools is an important element of this process and must be sensitive to a variety of diversity/multicultural considerations. This presentation will provide psychologists and police administrators with background information about diversity/multicultural issues in police recruitment/selection in general, and in pre-employment psychological screenings, specifically. The presenters will provide insights about partnership formation, analyzing police pre-employment psychological screening data to examine diversity/multicultural issues ,and engage in a planning exercise for the development of local norms.
