LET 2600 - Multicultural Policing: Cultural Perspectives in Criminal Justice


Multicultural Policing: Cultural Perspectives in Criminal Justice develops within students a broad understanding of social justice from a criminal justice construct and the appropriate response of criminal justice practitioners performing criminal justice functions in an increasingly diverse society. Students explore emerging strategies for policing in a diverse society as well as the correct police response to emergent dimensions of social or cultural diversity including the homeless, mentally ill, gangs, documented and undocumented immigrants, and multicultural issues as they relate to terrorism and homeland security. Students examine, compare, and contrast the various characteristics of emergent multicultural groups in America including their history, politics, everyday life, behaviors, religion, and predict their potential impact on criminal justice functions.
