Successful completion of this program will prepare officers to conduct diversity training within their organizations and academies.

Law enforcement is charged with relating to all segments of their communities in a fair and impartial manner. Therefore, familiarization with communication styles, customs, language and behavior patterns of various cultures, ethnic groups and non-traditional populations will effectively enhance the quality of police services and departmental image. Shared knowledge of various populations will enhance officer safety, and is likely to increase understanding and empathy in the process of improving police-citizen contacts. This course will also offer several strategies for improving workforce diversity, and community relations.
