Police faces see recruitment struggles, surge in retirements

PHILADELPHIA — Police in Philly and beyond are struggling with a shortage of police recruits and a surge in retirements. “People don’t want to be police anymore,” one local police chief said. “It’s a good job, and good-paying job, but when you look at national news every day, people just don’t want to be officers.”  Law enforcement officials attributed the decline in interest in police jobs to a confluence of events, from the national outcry over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the murder trial of his convicted killer, former Officer Derek Chauvin, to the fatal shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. at the hands of Philadelphia police to general mistrust of police authority. Mensah M. Dean, Julie Shaw, and Vinny Vella, The Philadelphia Inquirer.
