Cultural Awareness is more unique for Law Enforcement than in any other profession because of the authority held by police officers. This authority creates a special need for understanding a multicultural society.  To assist law enforcement professionals in meeting the challenges of working with diverse communities, the Indiana State Police has created a specific program. This program will allow law enforcement to be able to see others from a different point of view and help us understand, from a cultural perspective, why certain groups of people see things through a different lens. A lack of knowledge of cultural differences may result in an unintentional violation of individuals’ rights as well as officer safety and risk issues. The unique role of law enforcement officials in any community makes cross-cultural understanding imperative. Law enforcement officials need to understand, respect, and have a willingness to communicate with all segments of the population. If members of the community feel that their own concerns are not understood, confidence in law enforcement personnel to meet their needs may be severely diminished. It is critical we understand the changing community and the racial/ethnic challenges that we face on a daily basis.


This program is not just for law enforcement, it has been designed for presentation to communities as well. Already, the Indiana State Police has met with and provided a public outreach version of this program to thousands of citizens.  During the civilian presentation, the participants get to experience what it is like to make a traffic stop and deal with unknown dangers. They face the challenge, in a controlled environment, of when and when not to use force.  As a result this training has received incredible reviews and has changed for the better the way many individuals perceive law enforcement.     


Much like the civilian version of the program, the law enforcement version is not designed to preach to anyone or tell officers that their thoughts or beliefs are wrong.  This training is designed to open officers’ minds to see the world from someone else’s point of view.  It helps officers understand that when people are passionate and sincere about their position, it must be based on an experience or grievance real or perceived.  We ask this same open mindedness of civilians when they attend this program.


Training in firearms, arrest procedures, and other tactical issues are needed for our profession. However, cultural awareness and communication are equally important. Understanding the context of communication and the role that it plays in human interaction with different cultures helps us be more effective and more efficient when dealing with the public.

Understanding Police Use of Force - The Real Rules


This course is designed for department policy makers, physical tactics instructors, firearms instructors, administrative officers, patrol supervisors, command staff, internal affairs officers, police officers, and attorneys that are involved in use of force cases.



Course Description:


“The Supreme Court has expressly stated that if a law enforcement officer has the authority to conduct a seizure, he/she has the authority to use force or the threat of force to accomplish that mission. Further, the Court has ordered that any analysis of a police use of force must be conducted per the Fourth Amendment’s ‘objective reasonableness’ standard. Unfortunately, research continues to show that officers may be prone to hesitate in reasonable use of force, even when faced with a significant threat. This seminar discusses the problem in light of some of the misunderstandings regarding the standard of law, improper training and misguided policies which attempt to minimize the threat of civil litigation – all of which have been identified as counterproductive to proper threat perception and appropriate response. Attendees will be exposed to a model which can assist both officers and civilians in conceptualizing reasonable response to threat per the direction of the United States Supreme Court in Graham v. Connor, 490 U.S. 386 (1989).”



Course Instructed by Use of Force Expert Witnesses : Robert Black and  Ron Hantz, or Indiana Law Enforcement Academy Staff Attorney Tim Cain.
