Southwest Local Site for FBI's Teleconference on Cultural Diversity

Southwest Tennessee Community College (Southwest) is the local host institution for a nationwide teleconference, Cultural Diversity: Impacting Every Officer, Every Day. Produced by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Training Network (FBITN), this two-hour broadcast will be an exploration of diversity from an organizational and community perspective. It is free and open to the public.

The broadcast will be aired from noon to 2 p.m., Wednesday, March 13, at the Macon Cove Campus, 5983 Macon Cove, in Farris Auditorium. The teleconference is part of an ongoing series offered by FBITN to the public and law enforcement agencies at no cost.

This informative session is designed to answer the following question: How does cultural diversity apply to law enforcement? It will examine the issue as it relates to recruitment, applicant matters, relationships with co-workers, and assignment to certain duties.

Topics of discussion include Racial Profiling, Police Misconduct, and Maintaining the Trust of a Diverse Community. Veteran law enforcement officials will discuss how these issues on diversity impact the faith and confidence of the public that they serve.
