Law enforcement diversity may improve policing: Study

A new study has suggested that diversity in law enforcement can lead to improvements in how police treat people of color. The authors of the study analyzed data on nearly 3 million Chicago Police Department patrol assignments, and found that compared to white officers, Black and Hispanic officers made far fewer stops and arrests, and used force less often against Black civilians.

Best way is to have police who serve the community they live in. When you have an outsider that has a negative outlook on the community instead of an understanding of that community it sets them up for failure. Forcing diversity can create problems, but naturally letting diversity happen is a beautiful thing. Also, police will never be perfect when dealing with people who don't want to be dealt with. They deserve more credit, though they need to be held accountable for their bullshit and not by their own rules. We need community oversight of them.

You lie .Many police department are already diversified .Still you all swear up and down they are rasist .This artical is nothing but BS . The problem people do not want to take responsibility for their actions .To many people taking the side of the criminals not the victims. This is why all law abiding citizens need the 2 Amendment .

Maybe don’t hire hot-headed, trigger happy people who may or may not have an inferiority complex

Instead of forcing diversity, why not give police bigger budgets explicitly for training, as in unarmed training and training concerning the laws. I honestly don’t care what the officer looks like as long as they can do the job and do it to the best way they can given whatever situation they might find themselves in.
