Police Leaders of Tomorrow was created in recognition of the need for diversity in policing. A police department that is as diverse as the community it serves will be more effective in providing services and fighting crime
Although the Fairfax County Police Department is more diverse today than in previous years, the Department continues to seek opportunities to ensure its membership is reflective of the community it serves. Through opportunities such as Police Leaders of Tomorrow, the Fairfax County Police Department seeks to create an agency as diverse as the community it serves. There are two goals of the Police Leaders of Tomorrow program. The first is to encourage those who attend to consider a career in law enforcement. The second is to educate young adults about policing.
In an effort to increase diversity, interested applicants between the ages of 18-24 are selected to attend a one week training course. Police Leaders of Tomorrow offers a variety of activities and opportunities for attendees to learn about the police profession, the importance of service to the community, and maintaining good character.
