Course Description

Policing can neither effectively nor reasonably occur without an adequate understanding of and engagement with the populations served. Accordingly, given the growing diversity within communities across the United States, cultural competence must undergird the activities of police psychologists. The need to develop this capacity is ongoing; as such, recent matters and topics affecting the domains of police psychology will be discussed and tied to the relevant literature. Since supporting policing requires broad knowledge of the profession’s contemporary challenges, the perspectives of a police executive 49 and results of a survey focusing on diversity and multiculturalism will also be shared. These comments and findings will be used to generate practical yet evidence-based recommendations.
