Overview

Fourth Edition

 

MULTICULTURAL LAW ENFORCEMENT

Strategies for Peacekeeping in a Diverse Society

 

Robert M. Shusta, Deena R. Levine, Herbert Z. Wong, Aaron T. Olson and Philip R. Harris

 

 

 “The authors of Multicultural Law Enforcement: Strategies for Peacekeeping in a Diverse Society illustrate that an awakening must take place if law enforcement is to adjust successfully to the demographic realities facing the United States in the 21st century. This text shows why an enhanced sense of cultural awareness and understanding of multicultural diversity issues have become increasingly essential for today's police officers.”

 

Retired Captain Alan C. Youngs, Lakewood Police Department (Colorado)

 

 

 

The five authors of Multicultural Law Enforcement provide a comprehensive look at the challenges that police officers face as they interact with individuals from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The authors focus on cross-cultural contact withlaw enforcement and the associated professionalism required to deal with issues of multicultural diversity. They highlight the fact that, with the respect that law enforcement exhibits, members of minority communities and law enforcement will develop excellent relationships and mutual trust. .

 

This completely updated Fourth Edition of Multicultural Law Enforcement: Strategies for Peacekeeping in a Diverse Society provides key insights and information relevant to criminal justice professionals on law enforcement contacts across cultures and races. Chief executives, managers, supervisors, police and correctional officers, federal agents, and students will all benefit from the book’s guidelines, its insights and the practical knowledge in every chapter. .

 

This fourth edition includes new or updated information on:

 

 

·        Community policing — new success stories and illustrations.

·        Immigration and unauthorized migrants in the U.S.

·        Racial profiling status and new legislation

·        Recruitment and retention of women and minorities

·        Issues pertinent to sexual orientation and law enforcement

·        Multicultural issues related to terrorism, homeland security, and disaster preparedness. 

·        The "Patriot Act" and related  issues for law enforcement.

Criminal justice instructors, students and law enforcement trainers will welcome Multicultural Law Enforcement (4th Edition) as a complete learning package that offers the following time-saving supplements: Instructor's Manual, Student Study Guide, Chapter Tests and an Instructor's Resources CD with Chapter Teaching Point Slides. 

 

“One of the greatest challenges to American Society is developing the ability to respect and acknowledge cultural differences while drawing on the strengths of diversity. The police and all other law enforcement professionals need to be on the cutting edge of meeting that challenge — this text will help them to effectively fulfill their responsibility.”

 

Darrel W. Stephens, Chief of Police

Preface

This second edition of Multicultural Law Enforcement: Strategies for Peacekeeping in a Diverse Society is a tribute to all our readers who enthusiastically received the original work. It is a textbook for police departments and academies, colleges, and universities. It is also designed to assist all levels of criminal justice representatives in understanding the pervasive influences of culture, race, and ethnicity in the workplace and in multicultural communities. The text again focuses on the cross-cultural contact that police officers and civilian employees have with citizens, victims, suspects, and coworkers from diverse backgrounds. This second edition also includes new or expanded material on the following: hate crimes; community-based policing; undocumented immigrants and immigrant women; urban dynamics; women, gays, and lesbians in law enforcement; and a substantial discussion of racial profiling. We include updated demographic data using the most current population estimates and projections available to date.

Throughout these pages, we stress the need for awareness, understanding of cultural differences, and respect toward those of different backgrounds. We encourage all representatives of law enforcement to examine preconceived notions they might hold of particular groups. We outline for police executives why they should build awareness and promote cultural understanding and tolerance within their agencies.

An increasing number of leaders in law enforcement agencies and their employees have accepted the premise that greater cross-cultural competency must be a key objective of all management and professional development. Demographicchanges have had a tremendous impact not only on the types of crimes committed but also on the composition of the law enforcement workforce and the people with whom officers make contact. To be effective, police executives must understand the diversity in their workforces and in their changing communities. Professionalism today includes the need for greater consideration across cultures and improved communication with members of diverse groups.

In an era when news is processed and accessed immediately, the public is exposed almost daily to instances of cross-cultural and interracial contact between law enforcement agents and citizens. So, too, have community members become increasingly sophisticated and critical with regard to how members of diverse cultural and racial groups are treated by public servants. Employees of police departments and other agencies entrusted with law enforcement find that they are now serving communities that carefully observe them and hold them accountable for their actions.

This new edition has been updated and expanded to provide practical information and guidelines for law enforcement managers, supervisors, officers, and instructors. With cross-cultural knowledge, sensitivity, and tolerance, those who are charged with the responsibility of peacekeeping will improve their image while demonstrating greater professionalism, within the changing multicultural workforce and community.
