Los Angeles: The Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) is a recruiting initiative developed by the United States Army Recruiting Command to appeal to young people interested in obtaining a quality civilian job after serving in the Army.

This unique program is part of the Army’s effort to partner with America’s industry and re-connect America with the Army. The intent of the PaYS program is to provide an additional recruiting incentive to increase the Army’s ability to man the force. Having a job with a leading employer using a skill learned in the Army makes the PaYS program attractive to young people.

The Los Angeles Police Department has agreed to provide preferred hiring status to qualified soldiers who participate in the PaYS Program. The LAPD recognizes the importance of employee development and recruitment, and through the partnership enacted by the ceremonial agreement, the PaYS Program and the LAPD look forward to a concerted effort of personnel development.
