Hamilton police will hold a second recruiting event at a local mosque next week in hopes of evolving into a force that is more representative of a diverse city.

The event comes at a time when Muslim community leaders have spoken out about lack of diversity on the board that oversees the service.

"The reality is that we would like to see more diversity on the police services board, and would like to see that diversity reflected in the service itself," said Kamran Bhatti, a director of the Muslim Association of Hamilton.
