Multicultural Law Enforcement: Strategies for Peacekeeping in a Diverse Society, 6e is designed for use in criminal justice and social/behavioral science courses, as well as law enforcement in-service training classes and police academies. The textbook is also directly applicable in colleges, university and vocational programs offering emergency services for: police, fire and rescue, emergency medical, emergency management, 911, military as well as civil emergency services.

This comprehensive, student-friendly text, like no other on the market, is designed for students who will become part of a diverse workforce and who, in their future careers, will encounter citizens from many backgrounds.

Multicultural Law Enforcement: Strategies for Peacekeeping in a Diverse Society, 6e, addresses topics of key concern to criminal justice and emergency service professionals, including cultural awareness, prejudice, bias, racial profiling, hate and bias crimes, and cross-cultural communication. It covers issues of workforce diversity such as the recruitment and retention of minorities. The content deepens readers' understanding of many demographic groups in our nation’s multicultural population, broadly focusing on ethnicity, race, culture and sexual orientation as well as on other societal sub-groups, including immigrants, refugees, homeless, mentally ill and gangs. The book also addresses multicultural issues that relate to terrorism, homeland security and disaster preparedness. The information and insights contained in the text will no doubt contribute to the increasing need for professionalism required of law enforcement in responding to multicultural diversity issues. Using examples from case studies and established guidelines within law enforcement, the text focuses squarely on the contact police officers and civilian employees have with the community, emphasizing the importance of cultural awareness, understanding, and respect. In adopting this textbook, instructors will have access to a complete learning package designed to stimulate students' higher levels thinking and awareness.

About the Author:

Robert M. Shusta, Captain (retired), MPA, served over 27 years in law enforcement, and retired as Captain at the Concord (California) Police Department. He has been a part-time instructor at numerous colleges and universities in northern California and at police academies.

He has served on state commissions responsible for developing POST guidelines and state policy recommendations. (Retired) Captain Shusta has conducted extensive training on cultural awareness and hate crimes as well as Train the Trainer programs on combating domestic violence. His interest in increasing officers’ familiarity with the challenges of policing a multicultural society began with his Command College thesis, introducing a model development plan for law enforcement agencies experiencing demographic changes due to immigration. (Retired) Captain Shusta is one of the early pioneers to bring attention to the need for cross-cultural awareness in law enforcement.
