Based on recent scrutiny placed on law enforcement from the public and the media, this course will provide students with an understanding of the importance of recognizing cultural differences. Course topics include the prejudice, bias, and personal experience, in-groups and out-groups, explicit and implicit bias, system 1 and system 2 thinking, and cultural awareness to establish police legitimacy and procedural justice. Students will view four videos along with completing a series of activities and reading assignments.
