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.

Suggested Web Browser and Information:
Most internet service providers can provide adequate speed and connection stability for purposes of this course. If your private residence has some type of wireless internet access in a rural setting, you likely will have difficulties completing activities in this course. We have found that rural/wireless setups have been inconsistent in their network stability and speed, providing a sub-optimal experience.This is not a guaranteed phenomenon so you may not experience any problems, and this likely will not be an issue using a laptop or mobile device in a public area that offers wireless access.University of Missouri Extension does not have any control over an Internet Service Provider's (ISP) ability to provide a stable network environment. So if you have a rural/wireless internet connection it would be a good idea for you to consider finding an alternate location to access course activities.
