In discussing strategies for police work in a diverse society, this book considers the impact of cultural diversity on law enforcement, training in cultural understanding for law enforcement, cultural specifics for law enforcement, response strategies to crimes motivated by hate/bias, and cultural effectiveness for peace officers. Part I introduces readers to the implications of a multicultural society for law enforcement, both within and outside the police agency. Chapters address the challenges of multicultural communities for law enforcement; the changing law enforcement agency as a microcosm of society; and multicultural representation in police recruitment, retention, and promotions. Part II presents information on multiple aspects of cultural awareness training and cross-cultural communication in law enforcement. Two chapters discuss the preparation and implementation of cultural awareness training and cross-cultural communication for law enforcement. Part III presents chapters on police contact with five cultural groups in the United States: Asian/Pacific Americans, African-Americans, Latino/Hispanic Americans, Arab Americans and other Middle Eastern groups, and American Indians. Part IV contains three chapters that explain strategies for preventing, controlling, reporting, tracking, and investigating crimes that are based on hate or bias because of the victim's race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. Part V highlights some of the themes from previous chapters and discusses broad concepts of the peace officer and cultural diversity.

Social, political, and economic relationships played key roles in the historical development of the police. The authors present policing strategies from the vantage points of marginalized communities and emphasize the intersection of attitudes about class, race/ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation with policies. Police practices cannot be class neutral in a class society, nor can they be race neutral or gender neutral in a racist, sexist, and heterosexist society. The key to understanding the relationship between the police and society is to think critically about the role of power and interests. The second edition includes a new chapter in the section on the police and rebellion covering recent events. There is also a new chapter on Latino/a police officers and an expanded chapter on LGBTQ police officers. Without meaningful social change toward greater justice, police reforms such as community policing and training in cultural diversity will fall short of creating an institution characterized by fairness and equality for all members of society. A clear view of history is essential for understanding the challenges a more diverse police force faces in today’s multicultural environment.
