Course Overview: Cultural Awareness for Law Enforcement initiates the process of seeing past stereotypes by raising each student’s awareness of the culture in which they live. Once students are tuned into the elements of their own culture, they will be exposed to their own implicit bias and guided down a path of exploring and implementing the best strategies for connecting with and appreciating those from other cultures. Students will be provided with opportunities to hear the voices of those from other cultures and, through their work in this course, they will develop tools to assist them in successfully applying the important concepts of cultural awareness in their work environment.
Instructor: Kirk Lundgren
