Description:

This graph will show the number of females hired for entry-level deputy positions within the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.


Significance:

The number of deputy positions currently filled by females is very low. Tracking the number of newly hired female deputies will help determine if the use of Public Safety Testing has increased the number of female deputies within the agency.

Description:

Spokane County Sheriff's Office, like many law enforcement agencies, has a significant difference in the number of female deputies versus male deputies. By tracking the applicants by gender and using the Public Safety Testing entry-level exam, we are hoping to see an increase of the number of female applicants for entry-level positions.


Significance:

The gender disparity within the Spokane County Sheriff's Office is significant and does not represent the County as a whole.

Description:

The Sheriff's office desires a more diverse applicant base from which to fill deputy sheriff positions. Currently, most applicants are within a 75-mile radius of Spokane. This tracks the number of test scores received from applicants outside the 75-mile radius.


Significance:

Spokane County has a very limited population diversity. Civil Service signed a two-year agreement with a nation-wide testing service in an attempt to increase these numbers. The agreement started September 1, 2015. Population diversity increases significantly outside a 75-mile radius of Spokane.
