This paper is a case study of the Clark County School District (CCSD) Police Department recruitment and selection process. The case study examines and evaluates the human resource function in the recruiting and hiring of police officers. The case study addresses the issue of line-staff relations and how it was best resolved in this organization in order to effectively recruit and select CCSD Police Officers. The paper addresses the historical, structural, and philosophical factors of the Clark County School District Police Department in discussing the possible organizational strategies for recruiting and selection of police officers. This paper uses a specific job position (police officer) and a specific management function (recruiting and selection) within a specific organization (CCSD) to analyze the general philosophical issue of what is the role of the human resource function within the management of this organization.
