Police recruitment and retention has been a subject of concern in the police. Due to the nature of the job, there have been several requirements in the recruitment and selection process in order to ensure that there is equity and representation for all communities and races.  The nature of the job is also very trying and having a well catered for and motivated workforce may not be an option for any police chief.  In order to ensure that there is a well coordinated recruitment and a high retention rate for the police officers, there are important guidelines which have bee provided by a number of publications to assist in the process.  This paper will review the police recruitment and retention as published in Police Chiefs Desk Reference. It will also compare this with other publication on the same issue of recruitment and training. (Kristen, 2006)
