Yes, this is yet another racial profiling course – but I can promise you this pill is small and easy to swallow. In this short course, I get you involved, pose some questions for you to consider, explore some scenarios and share some personal experiences too, all while covering the requirements of the law.
This course is Missouri POST accredited for 1-hour CLEE training in the area of Interpersonal Perspective and meets the required 1 hour per year racial profiling training.
Is Racial profiling and racially based policing alive and active in Missouri Law Enforcement? Many would want you to believe that it is!
I’m not here to debate that question, but what I am here to do is to help you fulfill your Missouri mandated requirement that you be reminded of the elements of the current law regarding racial profiling and racially based policing in Missouri.
If you have been in Missouri law enforcement very long you will know that going over the same law, the same requirements; year, after year, after year, has become – well boring.
So many instructors, like myself, have tried to sweeten it up with a bit of honey or sandwich it between other training so that it could be swallowed more easily.
Well, in this short course I meet the state requirements of the law by reminding you of the reporting information, protected categories, and training requirements. But then I get you involved, pose some questions for you to consider, explore some scenarios that could trip you up in your everyday work, and share some personal experiences too. I even give you an 8 step approach to traffic stops that will help in eliminating complaints.
Then, to meet the Missouri requirements of online training, you are asked to take a small quiz which will assure your understanding of the 4 main elements of the law.
Yes, it is yet another racial profiling class – but I can promise you that this pill is small and easy to swallow.

- Explain the requirements of the Missouri Statute regarding racial profiling.
- Define the training requirements officer must meet regarding the law.
- Explain how the racial profiling law can affect enforcement activity
