8. Needed skills

882 applicants that applied indicated that they speak other languages

9. Challenges

Many law enforcement agencies across the country are facing staffing shortages; as a result,

competition to recruit quality applicants has become more intense. County, state, and municipal

administrations are allocating funds to fully staff recruiting units, and to increase applicant incentives.

Additionally, benefits, salary, and retention packages have been upgraded in an effort to attract and keep

officers. APD must keep pace with other agencies in order to attract individuals who meet the high

standards required by our department.



2016 Objectives and Recommendations



Seat 100 applicants

Action Plan: With two established cadet classes and an aggressive recruiting campaign
our goal is to seat 100 applicants in 2016.

Electronic Personal Integrity Questionnaire

Action Plan: Update the Personal Integrity Questionnaire (PIQ) and require applicants to
submit it electronically utilizing the new recruiting website.



Further assist approved applicants who have signed up for testing

Action Plan: Augment mass email reminders with phone calls to cadet applicants several
days prior to their test date

Training in order to offer more testing opportunities to accommodate applicant schedules

Action Plan: Testing weekends now occur twice a month. In certain cases, and as
scheduling allows, applicants who cannot make a weekend test date have been allowed

to test during the week. To supplement this recent accommodation, recruiters are being

trained to administer the written portion of the psychological exam which now only

takes place on Sundays.
