Impact of Islamophobia and ISIS on Law Enforcement

A Cultural Competency Webinar

“This webinar provides an ING presentation and an open discussion on the topics of Islamophobia and ISIS. This recorded seminar was delivered live on September 8, 2016 to about 100 police chiefs and other law enforcement executives through the Northern California Regional Intelligence Center Building Communities of Trust (BCOT) series. The BCOT initiative focuses on developing relationships of trust between our region’s public safety organizations and the communities law enforcement serves, particularly immigrant and minority communities, so that the challenges of crime control and prevention of terrorism can be addressed. We really appreciate the work of the Islamic Networks Group (ING) for developing the presentation and webinar. The feedback we’ve received on this has been phenomenal. We highly recommend it to other agencies.”
