At the end of January, the Register-Star announced the launch of a new program to "develop a pool of minority candidates that are able and willing to take advantage of openings for police officers": "Program looks to up police minority hiring." Last night, the Law Enforcement Diversification Initiative (LEDI), funded by the Galvan Foundation, held its first session. The event was covered by News Channel 13: "Initiative aims to add more minority cops."
