Contemporary Diversity, 8 hours (sworn & non-sworn)
Often delivered as a system-wide course, this popular course examines how values and life experience play a big part in how we interact at work. Whether we are line level detention staff, sergeants, or lieutenants and captains, most operate from our own life experience. Part of what makes a sheriff’s department more solid and high functioning is realizing that equity in the workplace is more about making a real effort to work with all people (inmates and coworkers). This course is really a course about people making conscious choices to work together, be a team, and form real professional relationships with each other. This class explores that topic and offers skills and best practices for getting it done. This course is easily customized. It can be offered in a four-hour course but eight-hours is more effective.
