As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WashingtonExaminer:

The University of Pennsylvania Police Department is openly recruiting candidates it labels “progressive applicants” to join its ranks.

The recruiting pitch is only present on the Division of Public Safety’s homepage and not on the linked police department employment page.

“The University of Pennsylvania Police Department seeks progressive applicants for the position of Police Officer,” the homepage reads. Meanwhile, the department’s employment page uses more neutral language to indicate that “the University of Pennsylvania Police Department is accepting applications for the position of Police Officer.”

Below is a screenshot from the website:

Another section on the Division of Public Safety homepage outlines “Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion.” It reads:

Diversity is a priority for the Division of Public Safety in our commitment to the Community we serve.

Our goal is to engage and empower all the diverse voices of our Community so that, as a collective, we can remove barriers that perpetuate inequity, injustice, and exclusivity. We will work to create a safe place where all members of our Community – of any race, creed; culture; socio-economic status; sexual orientation; residency; gender, and/or disability – can live freely, thrive, and learn and grow together.
