Recruitment nightmares with officers
William L. Harvey writes: "Some believe that the police hiring process is a mundane and relatively simple process. Advertise, test and before you know it there are new officers. This may have been the way in the past century but a far cry from today's legal realities. Of course, the old-timers will tell of how easy it was for them back in their day.
"First of all, that ship has sailed of the easy and good old days. A modern department is fraught with many perils in the hiring arena. New chiefs and sheriffs, pay attention and acquaint yourself with the process."
