“The Law Enforcement Professional Series: 21st Century Policing Community and Cultural Competency”2 UPI’s Law Enforcement Professionals Series Course Policing in the 21st Century is deadly. Gone are the days of instantaneous respect for authority. Police Officers are under the constant scrutiny of the media and public. Departments are being held to unreasonably high standards and expected to have the benefit of hind-sight in every situation regardless the level of complexity. Agencies and Departments at every level of law enforcement are paying settlements at unsustainable rates. Even the wealthiest localities cannot continue to pay record amounts of settlements. Sadly, citizens are dying as a result of too many Police Officer encounters gone awry. And there are equally too many Law Enforcement Professionals giving their lives to protect the citizenry. Something must be done and UPI Education is taking action. Based on the findings of the President’s Task Force “21st Century Policing and the research of renowned law enforcement researchers such as Ben Bradford, Jonathan Jackson and Mike Hough, UPI Education crafted a Law Enforcement Professionals Series. The UPI Education Series has been carefully developed to strengthen the Law Enforcement Professionals abilities in: » Procedural Justice » Police Legitimacy » Cultural Competence
