Description: This report presents research conducted by the International City/ County Management Association on the views of police departments and communities regarding police officer recruitment, training, and community engagement. The survey targeted communities of varying sizes and regions to better understand the characteristics sought in the “model” police officer. The insights gleamed from these responses seek to provide guidance for police departments in retooling their recruitment and training strategies. With a better understanding of shared priorities and the effectiveness of various community engagement strategies, police departments across the country can begin to think about building more effective practices.
