City of Ferguson and Ferguson police officials have repeated the assertion that the police department does not reflect the community - in that there are only 3 black officers - because not enough applicants are in the applicant pool. When asked about recruitment, the response has been that they cannot make people want to do the job. A look at their website, however, doesn't support that assertion. No mention of police recruitment is present. In fact, there is not even a job posting for a police officer or even a way to apply to the police department. That would explain why there are no applicants much more than any reason that Ferguson officials have sited so far.
