A Look Inside the NYPD’s Recruiting Efforts

(PIX 11) Before they can wear the uniform and have the privilege to carry the gun and shield, those looking to join the NYPD have to pass through the new candidate assessment unit.

It’s a one stop shopping center for job applicants at the former police academy.

“Our new recruiting efforts are somewhat unorthodox and the reason why I say that, is because we’re looking for a certain cohort. We call them the ‘millennials’ from 18 to 34 and they are interested in what you can offer them,” said Assistant Chief Kim Royster, commanding officer of the candidate assessment unit.

Those interested in joining the NYPD, should visit NYPDRecruit.com.
