IACP Diversity Coordinating Panel

The pivotal role that workplace diversity can play in promoting effective and representative law enforcement was captured by Chief Viverette in the President’s Message that appeared in the December 2005 issue of the Police Chief:

We have learned that to be effective, police cannot operate alone; they require the active support and assistance of their communities. Central to maintaining that support is the recognition that law enforcement agencies must reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.
