Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams made another urgent plea Monday to fill empty public safety positions and increase department diversity.

KJZZ’s Paige Phelps spoke with Chief Williams this morning, and she said the department is trying to make up for the six years that the department could not hire any people at all.

And one way to attract fresh, new talent to the almost 350 open positions, are new partnerships with colleges and high schools.
