The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Center for Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) recently partnered to give law enforcement agencies information and tools for recruitment at a time of budget cuts, military callups, and increasing officer retirement.

- Recruiting for Diversity. Outlines the importance of diversity in law enforcement and strategies for effective minority recruitment.
- Agency Collaboration in Police Officer Recruitment and Selection. Contains case studies of successful regional and intra-agency recruitment collaboratives across the country.
- Community Partnerships in Police Recruitment. Discusses why and how to engage the community and civic organizations in the recruitment and selection process.
