Building Positive Police-Community Relations
Course Hours: 4.0 Hours
Law enforcement agencies who build trust and cooperation with their communities enjoy greater support from members of the public. Part of building trust is through a general understanding of the major ethnic groups within the community, and by practicing appropriate non-enforcement activities. In this course, officers will learn about the diverse ethnic communities in Georgia, and about programs and activities individual officers can take to help promote positive relationships with the community. Course topics include race and ethnicity, perspectives of members of different ethnic groups, the challenges of language barriers, the SARA problem-solving model, a review of the impact that controversial incidents on the broader law enforcement community, and an overview of programs that have been successful in building positive police-community relationships.
