• Recruitment and Retention of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Background Officers.

      Asquith, Nicole; Dimopoulos, M.; NSW Police (Australasian Police Multicultural Advisory Bureau, 2005-05)
      Implicit in the current dialogue on community policing in Australia and New Zealand, is the assumption that the people who comprise our policing organisations need to respond efficiently and competently to changing demographics, crime, terrorism, increasing community and government expectations. It is timely for Australian and New Zealand police jurisdictions to take a lead role in policy and practice of policing in a culturally, linguistically, politically and religiously diverse environment. In order to facilitate this, focus and organisational commitment must be given to developing leadership and recruitment and retention initiatives which enhance the internal diversity of our workforces.
