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.
