Gaining interest when recruiting officers may be the only way that they learn anything out about the team. Especially officers who have only been on for 3-4 years sometimes don’t even think that they can apply for the position or even at times with older officers feel a bit less qualified. I do believe that you will get committed team members when you recruit. I believe that the younger generations are looking for a bit more hands on education and explanation. Lets face it this is true in most anything they do. This doesn’t make them less committed, but yet more calculated on their decision.
