Through a combination of class presentations by leading activists in the alternative justice movement and direct field monitoring of police on duty, students will experience first hand the complex issues faced by residents caught between high crime in their neighborhoods and the dangers that racial profiling, civil and human rights abuses bring to the community. Students will be trained in basic criminal procedure, analysis of power and techniques for observing police activity. In addition, students will examine the history and origins of police, resistance movements and community-based alternatives to the justice system as we know it.
