Your one-stop shop for reducing violence through evidence-based policing

This 8-hour course addresses the multitude of issues surrounding the controversy over the practice of racial profiling by the police. Through realistic scenarios and candid discussions, participants examine racial profiling related policy issues, the ineffectiveness of racial profiling in drug interdiction, and the costly impact of racial profiling (real or perceived) on the community.

Participants will learn to develop and employ more functional patrol techniques that increase cooperation from citizens, increase efficiency in arrests and seizure activity, and decrease liability associated with complaints. Specific case studies are offered to provide vivid examples of the consequences the police and the community face when racial profiling is exposed. However, the course emphasis is not on what practices to avoid but rather on how to accomplish the public-safety mission with greater efficiency and less risk for the officer, the community and the agency.

Participants will discuss liability concerns and the need for continuous, appropriate training, as well as ways to develop criminal profiles for drug couriers and concealed weapon offenders. Specific tactics for how to engage offenders and community members are discussed in depth, as are specific tactics for professionally disengaging.

This program is ideal for law enforcement officers, supervisors, trainers, accreditation managers, and those with responsibility for writing and enforcing departmental policy.
