Cerro Coso Community College

Recruit Diversity Training

POST class

Adjunct Professor Melissa Bowen, as part of the POST Learning Domain 42 Racial Profiling and Multiculturalism training, took recruits in the CCCC Modular Academy to the Manzanar Japanese Internment Camp. This powerful experience for the recruits resulted in some excellent discussion and self-reflection and was followed by an assignment to be completed after the visit.

A first for the Modular Academy, diversity training remains an important priority in all POST basic academies. Cerro Coso continues to provide courses that are relevant and supports the evolving role of law enforcement providing professional service to diverse populations.
