ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. – With the Rockland County police exams nearing, officials are working to attract diverse candidates who are more representative of the county’s communities, according to lohud.com.

The effort, it is hoped, will begin to balance several county police departments that are, by and large, white and male, according to lohud.com, which reported that the next police exams are scheduled for Nov. 19 and will be available in Spanish, French-Creole or Yiddish in addition to English.

County police are offering a wide range of assistance to those interested in taking the exams, including tutoring designed to aid with the written portion and educational information about how to train for the physical testing, according to lohud.com.

In Clarkstown alone, a recent recruitment class attracted about 150 people, according to lohud.com, which reported the department is to next provide tutoring classes on Oct. 22 and 23.
