Diversity Hiring

Vision:
The Henderson Police Department is committed to providing equal opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment. By working together with our community diversity groups, our goal is to increase awareness and acceptance of diversity in the Henderson Police Department and the community through inclusion education and opportunity.
Diversity Statement:
The Henderson Police Department engages in positive efforts to employ ethnic minority group members and women by taking affirmative action to achieve a ratio of minority group employees in approximate proportion to the composition of the service area. In seeking to employ qualified ethnic minority members and women, the Henderson Police Department will research, develop, and implement specialized minority and female recruitment methods.  In addition, the department will conduct a periodic review of the entire selection process to ensure it is non-discriminatory.
