This webinar will explore the impact of formal academic education, gender, race, age, and military service have on the number of deputy sheriff disciplinary issues. The results came from running a non-experimental quantitative research analysis using a large Southeast Sheriff’s Office.

This webinar is geared towards all criminal justice professionals, those employed in the field of academia, and citizens who are interested in learning the truth concerning disciplinary issues and law enforcement. Although the actual study being discussed focused solely on sworn law enforcement officers, the information gathered from the study can be used in a variety of fields. A portion of the webinar will provide crucial information specifically to law enforcement agency command staff members, chiefs of police and sheriffs, who are interested in using research-based strategies and policies in their own agencies to reduce issues and increase performance.

In this webinar, attendees will gain/learn the following:

  • An up-to-date snapshot of the levels of formal education in law enforcement.
  • Insight into the benefits of academic education and military service on disciplinary issues.
  • Important directions for future research.
  • The relationship between an agency’s hiring standards and their reputation.
  • Suggestions to law enforcement agencies concerning hiring when considering applicant credentials.
