Universities that have participated in our internship program include Shaw University, NC Central University, and Saint Augustine's College. Upon successful completion of the program, these students are actively recruited to join the police department. To that end, RPD has a dedicated Recruiting Unit that has prioritized its focus on diversity. Recruiting officers frequently visit historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in an effort to achieve a highly diverse workforce. PACT recommended that officers normally assigned to nighttime patrol be required to engage in daytime patrol to enhance their familiarity with their assigned neighborhoods. RPD Field Operations officers currently rotate schedules. As such, they spend an equal amount of time on day and nighttime patrol.
