For many years law enforcement organizations have struggled to recruit personnel. At the same time, local community members have demanded that these same law enforcement organizations adapt their organizations to reflect the communities that they serve. In this project, the author reviewed programs utilized by other organizations and a limited number of police departments. After reviewing literature on mentoring programs, this author developed a best practices model mentoring program for police departments and included successful techniques that departments can use to tailor a program according to the needs of their community.
