This POST-certified course will be presented to the San Francisco State University Police Department. Learn more about the Preventing and Responding to Anti-Muslim Bigotry course here.

Course Description:
This course will help in preventing and responding to hate crimes against Muslim American communities. It will help police officers distinguish a real threat from a perceived threat that is based on pervasive stereotypes of Muslims today. It will also develop empathy by sharing experiences of bigotry while building relationships and enhancing an officer’s cultural competency skills when working with Muslim American communities.

The training course is in two parts. The first part covers Muslim American demographics, challenges confronting Muslim Americans in the current environment, and the consequences of those challenges, including hate crimes. The second part addresses cultural awareness and policing best practices for hate crime prevention and response as well as for day-to-day interactions with Muslim individuals and institutions.
