Event description
A Ground-Breaking Class That Takes an Honest Look at Policing Today

About this event


The Law Enforcement Profession and the world has changed since the events in Los Angeles on March 3, 1991. Cameras are everywhere and people are watching. Pictures speak louder than words. After the events in Ferguson and Baltimore, in August of 2014, a commission convened and a guiding document was released on December 18, 2014.

The Final Report of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing points out how the mission of law enforcement is “to build trust between citizens and law enforcement so that all components of a community are treating one another fairly and justly and are invested in maintaining public safety in an atmosphere of mutual respect.” Fast forward to May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the death of George Floyd. A poor decision by one officer can affect other officers at the scene. Law Enforcement Agencies across the country are assessing and making appropriate changes to the way they provide services to the diverse communities they serve. Smart Policing takes Responsibility, Dedication to Purpose, Accountability, Transparency, Personal Commitment, and Effective Training.

Class Objective

This One-Day Class provides a real look at The Nobility of Service and Policing in the 21st Century. The Instructor will cover the importance of Responsibility, Accountability, Transparency, and Building Relationships, Human/Cultural Diversity, Ethical Decision-Making Skills, Officer Wellness and Safety. To assist law enforcement professionals in meeting the challenges of serving the communities, this class was developed by Law Enforcement Professionals, a Federal Prosecutor, and Crisis Management and Communication Specialist. The Instructor will provide a review of lessons learned from cases involving law enforcement encounters with diverse communities. This ground-breaking class encourages law enforcement professionals to make changes in the way they serve their communities. From your first encounter to relationship development…It’s about Public Perception.
