BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Safety to enter into contract with Performance Consulting Services (PCS) for training services for the Division of Police recruits and cadets. The focus and scope of the initiative is to provide diversity, equity, and inclusion support services through comprehensive training and consulting to the Columbus Division of Police incoming cadet and recruit classes.
Understanding that incoming recruits are at varying levels on their diversity, equity, and inclusion performance journey, Performance Consulting Services proposes a three-phased core training strategy to prepare the recruits to address the issues, needs, and concerns in building a 21st Century, culturally competent police force, workplace, and community environment. The three-phased training will be scheduled at the beginning, middle, and end of the new cadet/recruit training cycle.
Performance Consulting Services is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer and is certified by the State of Ohio and City of Columbus as a Minority Business Enterprise and has prior experience training Columbus Police recruits on diversity and cultural competence.
Fiscal Impact: This legislation authorizes an expenditure of $64,050.00 within the Division of Police’s General Fund with Performance Consulting Services to train recruits and cadets.
Emergency action is requested to immediately enter into contract to train our cadets and recruits to better serve the community.
