Lowering Police Officer Standards

Postby slick4591 » Tue Dec 12, 2017 9:21 am

This topic has been kicked around a little. This was announced yesterday and this will be the second time Dallas has lowered their standards in order to recruit new officers. Thoughts? (BTW this new chief is from Detroit if that matters to you.)

Dallas police chief says millennials partly to blame for officer shortage

He is a snippet

Chief Renee Hall told city council members on Monday about some new strategies to fill jobs.

Chief Hall is looking at everything from rewarding officers who recruit candidates to eliminating some of the automatic disqualifiers, like minor drug use from someone's past.

Both the Dallas Police Department and Dallas Fire-Rescue are struggling to find people who want to protect and serve. Both chiefs told city council members that the millennial generation is partly to blame.

"We have nights, weekends and holidays — not attractive to millennials who want all days off and to be the chief in six months,” Chief Hall said. “We recognize that is a challenge."

And that leaves a void that not many are wanting to fill. Who will replace them? Do agencies keep lowering their standards? Heck, doesn't seem like a lot of people are happy with the people that qualify now, so what's the answer?

Anyone connected with Human Resouces, is aware of the struggle. There's times where a bad hire is the only hire.

I have seen the mothers of 23 year old men show up at the work place, because their son is "not being treated fairly". Be a bad day, if my mom shows up at work to talk to the boss.

I work in a small county jail. We have several millennials that work here. Most want a career in law enforcement. We’re blessed

Maybe hire folks part time? Most cops retire ASAP, maybe make it where they have to work longer before their eligible for retirement. I have a group of cops that hunt with me every year, and not a single one of the guys worked till he was 50 before he retired.
