Department of Justice Forcing Quotas

No government department admits using quotas in order to cater to affirmative action, but the Department of Justice must surely have a number in mind. It is currently requiring the city of Dayton, Ohio to lower test standards for new recruits to the city’s police department because it says there are not enough African-Americans passing the exam. Their new, forced requirements allow a recruit to pass the test with the equivalent of an “F” or “D” on the test. How, exactly, is this good or safe for the community?

The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits. It’s a move required by the U.S. Department of Justice after it says not enough African-Americans passed the exam. Dayton is in desperate need of officers to replace dozens of retirees.  The hiring process was postponed for months because the D.O.J. rejected the original scores provided by the Dayton Civil Service Board, which administers the test.

The D.O.J. has forced other police departments across the country to lower testing standards, citing once again that not enough black candidates were passing. The Dayton Firefighter recruit exam is coming up this summer.  The chief said it’s likely the passing score for that test will be lowered as well.

  1. Pass The Police Exam Says:

    I have been surfing online greater than three hours lately, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
