Police department recruitment drive seeks diversity
"One major goal in recruiting is for the makeup of the department to mirror the community of Nashville/Davidson County and surrounding counties."
"'I have spoken with the Kurdish community and the Hispanic community and the African American community and all of these contacts that we have made through the process of the administration of this grant. We have built bridges and partnerships that are going to last for years and years to come,' she [Sgt. Dana Lyon of the department’s recruitment unit] said."
"The department also revamped its Web site to include Spanish translations and biographies of officers. The new recruitment brochures, which do use pictures of real police officers because the exposure is more limited, will also include 1,000 copies in Spanish."
