The township subscribes to the states civil service system when hiring employees, and so officers must meet certain requirements, including educational and physical ones, testing, and a background check, Berry said. That has impacted the pool of candidates available, he said. The township plans to soon roll out programs aimed at recruiting young people, including minorities, who can become officers, according to Berry. The programs would focus on bringing in young cadets and recruiting from faith-based organizations, he said. We have to do a little better job of outreach, Berry said.

This was followed by an activity intended to fostered a discussion about privilege and of how identity can be used to work toward the equality ofothers. All attendees were provided plastic cups full of beads, and statements were read out loud. Participants were asked to add beads into their cups for positive statements and subtract beads for negative statements. Students were encouraged to drop the beads in a plastic cup to serve as a tangible reminder that individuals in the community can both struggle and beprivileged. One of the two panel discussions in the first block was hosted by Michelle Lee 16 and Ji Sung Jung 17, two members of Liberty in North Korea (LiNK.) Their discussion focused on educating members of the University community about the current situation in the Koreas, offering historical background and more information on the current human rights violations in North Koreanprisons. Lee stressed the importance of these commonly under-acknowledgedissues. I really want people to be educated about human rights violations in North Korea, because the media only talks about how Kim-Jong Un hangs out with little American baseball players, Leesaid. Lee and Jung hosted a concluding brainstorming session to discuss ways that the University community can help. They specifically addressed the notions of donating money to help prisoners reestablish their liveselsewhere. I think as a Wesleyan community, we always emphasize diversity, Jung said. Its not only with people that relate to us; we try to reach out to any kind of people that we can.
