This class will be facilitated using lectures and guided discussions by invited guest speakers and student facilitators. There are opportunities for direct field monitoring of police on duty. Students will learn about 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, power analysis, 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.
