The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office in conjunction with the Gloucester County Chiefs of Police are proud to announce the launching of the Gloucester County Diversity Police Recruitment website. The purpose of the website is to ensure that all of Gloucester County’s police departments are law enforcement officers who reflect the population of our diverse communities. This website will increase the communities of Gloucester County understanding of and awareness of career opportunities in our police departments. The website features available positions offered by the police departments of Gloucester County and includes basic requirements and the means to apply for a position of interest. It additionally provides information related to each police department in Gloucester County as well as internship and mentorship opportunities.
The Gloucester County Diversity Recruitment website was created in response to the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office directive “Promoting Diversity in Law Enforcement Recruiting and Hiring.” The directive was established in December of 2021 to effectively serve the communities of New Jersey by striving to implement recruitment tactics that would allow the workforces to reflect the demographics of their communities. This Directive provided guidelines in response to legislation N.J.S.A. 52:17B-4.10 et seg. (the ‘Act’) that requires every law enforcement agency in New Jersey to establish a program designed to ensure every agency is “composed of law enforcement officers who reflect the diversity of the population the community agency is charged with protecting.” In response to the Directive and to meet the specific goals for recruiting a diverse workforce, in terms of people and color and gender diversity, the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office partnered with the Gloucester County Chiefs of Police to create and launch the website.
