Regional Recruitment Partnership
In the Triangle region, recruiting new candidates to the profession that meet rigorous standards for professional and personal integrity is a goal so important that it crosses town and city lines. Through the Regional Recruitment Partnership, a collaborative effort between Triangle J Council of Governments and law enforcement agencies spanning seven counties, departments hope to reach a broad and diverse audience with an important message: our region is committed to better partnerships, better communities, and better policing.
The Regional Recruitment Partnership launched its first campaign, Committed to Better, in October of 2020 as a research-driven effort to reach high-quality law enforcement candidates that reflect our region's diversity and values and are committed to continuous improvement, serving their fellow community members, and building emotional intelligence.
Participating departments included the towns of Apex, Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Clayton, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Hillsborough, Holly Springs, Knightdale, Morrisville, Princeton, Rolesville, Smithfield, Southern Pines, Wendell and Zebulon, and the city of Sanford.

"Our goal is to hire the most qualified, capable and committed candidates that will represent the values of the town and the police department. The partnership provides an opportunity to enhance our recruitment efforts by partnering with regional law enforcement agencies to share recruitment ideas and solutions, in hopes of reaching a wider and more diverse applicant pool”. - Chief Nick Polidori, Southern Pines Police Department
