Establishing a Career Pipeline in Public Schools

For the past several years, the California POST Commission has committed resources to an array of symposiums and publications focused on the identification of best practices for recruiting peace officers. Even with these efforts, far too many applicants fail to make it through the entry-level selection process. Although actual attrition during the selection process will vary widely from one agency to the next, experience suggests that as many as 100 applicants may be needed to yield just a few successful entry-level peace officers.
