The United States is one of the most diverse countries in the world and diversity has been one of the United States’ greatest strengths. Because demographics in the United States are always changing, officers need to be aware of cultural differences to be effective in their line of work. Diversity is a resource to criminal justice and should be viewed and used as such. This course will explain the basic requirements of 590.650 Revised Statutes of Missouri (RSMo), the basic requirements of 11 CSR 75-15.010 (8) and 590.050.1 RSMo, define racial profiling, and recommend specific actions that will prevent the illegal uses of racial profiling.
All learners will need to complete a demographic survey in the beginning of the training, an evaluation at the end of the training, and email Travis Witt about the completion of the training.
Through out the training, learners will need to watch the required video in full, then move on to completing the quiz over the video.
The course will be completed when learners have completed watching all assignments, submitting all quizzes, and emailing the Travis Witt of your completion of the course materials.
