Have recent events in Minnesota (George Floyd), Seattle (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone - CHAZ), New York City Riots, law enforcement officers attacked by rioters and protesters caused you to wonder what is happening to law enforcement officers in the United States? Are there more cases of civil disobedience with attacks on police or just more media coverage? Are these recent events happening in your community? How are these events affecting officer attitudes and morale? If you are interested in exploring some answers to these questions, this course is for you. The class will take a candid look at the factors driving law enforcement activities today such as changing officer work environments, changes in training, how individual beliefs affect officer-citizen contacts, and dealing with situations that require ethical decision-making.
Some of the significant factors contributing to officers unethical behaviors are their:

  • Work Environment

Notes:

2020 NO SHOW/CANCELLATION POLICY: Since we have VERY limited seating in classrooms with social distancing, NO SHOWS without notice effects people on class waitlists. We understand that in the law enforcement profession there are times that you cannot attend a class, but you can notify us by responding to the reminder emails that are sent out approximately one week prior to the class. We will begin tracking all no shows (people who do not attend class and don't notify us prior to the start of class). We are hoping this policy will cut down on people registering for numerous classes and not showing up for the those classes, which causes a 10-30% no show rate.
Fee: $0.00
Hours:6.00
