Because law enforcement agencies in the 21st Century face new challenges daily, there is an increasing need for timely, wide-ranging and relevant training. To meet this need, agencies must produce trainers who are not only experts in their fields, but who also have mastered the art of sharing their skills with others in a variety of situations.
Perhaps today's cultural landscape is more diverse than during the turbulent 1960s and 1970s. From the 1990s till today-political correctness has become affixed in modern dialogue; yet, Americans seem to be evermore divided along ethnic, cultural, and racial lines. Over the passage of time, citizens are establishing their identity and sometimes tensions turn into violence. When this occurs law enforcement officers are called upon as peacekeepers.
Diversity, Crime and Law Enforcement is a six-hour course designed to discuss the scope and complexity of ethnicity, culture, crime, and the fluidity of laws relative to demography. This course covers the impact of cultural diversity on law enforcement, racial profiling and profiling the police, law enforcement contact with Arab Americans and other Middle Eastern Groups, and concludes by offers suggestions for increasing awareness of cultural differences and community building strategies.
