Your knowledge of police ethics or lack thereof determines your experience! Every sworn officer knows, or at least should know by now, that they live in a glass jar. Friends, relatives, neighbors, and strangers watch every move that law enforcement officers make both on and off duty. The fact is that the public scrutinizes police officers more than most other professions either because theyre cynical or hope to catch them screwing up or because theyre hopeful and are looking for a good example and a strong leader. In either case, its up to the officer or civil service worker to be above reproach in both his public and private life. The major difference between most sworn officers or civil service workers and extremely successful officers or civil workers is the gap between what they know and what they do. Both groups have about the same knowledge base. Extremely successful officers and civil service works are just better at doing what they should be doing. I worked as a special deputy sheriff early in my young life, and there were times I lost my temper to the point where I wanted to cross ethical boundaries. I wrote this powerful, high-impact workbook to help fellow officers by educating them in police ethics so that they wont become a victim of poor decision-making, placed in the limelight of shame, and made the poster child for law enforcement ethical dilemmas. Using this ethical workbook in your organization will show your employees youre serious about their professional growth and achieving critical ethical goals and objectives. This ethics in law enforcement workbook allows you to train entire police departments for less than the cost of traditional public seminars or other training options. Give your officers and civil service workers the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to meet tough workplace challenges while on patrol or while working in a civil service position. This workbook will help them realize their full potential and perform at their peak and provide them with the tips and techniques they will need to stay calm and productive in any situation.

Law enforcement in a free society must strike a delicate balance between protecting individual rights to professional service, especially from government-sponsored agencies and the society’s interest in professional ethical decision-making by law enforcement professionals. Often this is seen as one between a principal defense of civil rights and a mere Unitarian interest in improving the continuity of customer service. There is no certain place to fix the line between appropriate and Impermissible correctional officer and custody staff professional conduct. What is most conspicuous about this area of ethics in Department of corrections is the lack of controlling standards for defining the roles of correctional officers and custody staff. The purpose of the correctional Leadership and Ethics Training is to prevent breaches of the peace; enforce the laws, directives and regulations which govern the correctional institutions to protect its employees, the facilities, its assets and the nation's currency" which function in synchronization. Trainees will be able to consult a menu of techniques and be encouraged to contribute ideas of their own.



Gambling and Gender

There are two distinct strands in the literature on gambling: one that focuses on how to play and win the various games of chance and one that focuses on gambling compulsion and addiction. Gambling and Gender forges a new direction, studying gambling as more communication than compulsion, more recreation than deviance, more sociology than psychology. Within that framework it seeks to explore several aspects of gender: How do the gambling behaviors of men and women differ? How have women adapted to and/or changed the historically male dominance of the gambling arena? What gambling activities have women claimed as their own and used to develop uniquely female relationships? How have recent trends in technology and mass media changed the ways in which men and women claim – or reject – their gender identities? The authors use a variety of research strategies, including content analysis, survey research, interviews, and participative observation, to shed new light on this fascinating subject and to suggest ways to explore it further.

The point of departure for this new edition, as it was for the first, is the unacceptable reality that, for students of color, school is often not a place to learn but a place of low expectations and failure. In urban schools with concentrations of poverty, often fewer than half the ninth graders leave with a high school diploma. This second edition has been considerably expanded with chapters that illuminate the Asian American, Native American, and Latina/o experience, including that of undocumented students, in our schools. These chapters offer insights into the concerns and issues students bring to the classroom. They also convey the importance for teachers, as they accept difference and develop cultural sensitivity, to see their students as individuals, and avoid generalizations. This need to go beneath the surface is reinforced by a chapter on adopted children, children of mixed race, and “hidden minorities”. White and Black teachers, and teachers of different races and ethnicities, here provide the essential theoretical background, and share their experiences and the approaches they have developed, to create the conditions – in both urban and suburban settings – that enable minority students to succeed. This book encourages reflection and self-examination, and calls for recognizing and reinforcing students’ ability to achieve. It also calls for high expectations for both teachers and students. It demonstrates what it means to recognize often-unconscious biases, confront institutional racism where it occurs, surmount stereotyping, adopt culturally relevant teaching, connect with parents and the community, and integrate diversity in all activities. This book is replete with examples from practice and telling insights that will engage teachers in practice or in service. It should have a place in every classroom in colleges of education and K-12 schools. Its empowering message applies to every teacher working in an educational setting that recognizes the empowerment that comes in celebrating diversity. Each chapter concludes with a set of questions for personal reflection or group discussion.

Diversity is the reality of America today. Whether you let diversity be a drain on your organization or a dynamic contributor to your mission, vision, and strategy is both a choice and a challenge. Building on the Promise of Diversity gives you the insights and skills you need to navigate through simmering tensions -- and find creative solutions for achieving cohesiveness, connectedness, and common goals. Building on the Promise of Diversity is R. Roosevelt Thomas’s impassioned wake-up call to bring diversity management to a wholly new level -- beyond finger-pointing and well-meaning “initiatives” and toward the shared goal of building robust organizations and thriving communities. This original, thoughtful, yet action-oriented book will help leaders in any setting -- business, religious, educational, governmental, community groups, and more -- break out of the status quo and reinvigorate the can-do spirit of making things better. The book includes a deeply felt analysis of the sometimes tangled intersections between diversity management and the Civil Rights Movement and affirmative action agendas . . . a personal narrative that charts Thomas’s own evolution in diversity thinking . . . and a roadmap for mastering the powerful craft of Strategic Diversity ManagementTM, a structured process that helps you: * Realize why multiple activities and good intentions are not enough for achieving sustainable progress. * Recast the meaning of diversity as more than just race and gender, but as any set of differences, similarities, and tensions -- such as workplace functions, product lines, acquisitions and mergers, customers and markets, blended families, community diversity, and more.* Accept that a realistic goal is not to eliminate diversity tension but to use it as a catalyst to address key issues. * Recognize diversity mixtures, analyze them accurately, and make quality decisions in the midst of differences, similarities, and tensions.* Build an essential set of diversity skills and develop your “diversity maturity” -- the wisdom, judgment, and experience to use those skills effectively.* Reflect on the ways you might be “diversity challenged” yourself.

Strategic Diversity Leadership

In today’s world – whether viewed through a lens of educational attainment, economic development, global competitiveness, leadership capacity, or social justice and equity – diversity is not just the right thing to do, it is the only thing to do!

Following the era of civil rights in the 1960s and ‘70s, the 1990s and early 21st century have seen both retrenchment and backlash years, but also a growing recognition, particularly in business and the military, that we have to educate and develop the capacities of our citizens from all levels of society and all demographic and social groups to live fulfilling lives in an interconnected globe.

For higher education that means not only increasing the numbers of diverse students, faculty, and staff, but simultaneously pursuing excellence in student learning and development, as well as through research and scholarship – in other words pursuing what this book defines as strategic diversity leadership. The aim is to create systems that enable every student, faculty, and staff member to thrive and achieve to maximum potential within a diversity framework.

This book is written from the perspective that diversity work is best approached as an intellectual endeavour with a pragmatic focus on achieving results that takes an evidence-based approach to operationalising diversity. It offers an overarching conceptual framework for pursuing diversity in a national and international context; delineates and describes the competencies, knowledge and skills needed to take effective leadership in matters of diversity; offers new data about related practices in higher education; and presents and evaluates a range of strategies, organisational structures and models drawn from institutions of all types and sizes. It covers such issues as the reorganisation of the existing diversity infrastructure, building accountability systems, assessing the diversity process, and addressing legal threats to implementation.

Its purpose is to help strategic diversity leaders combine big-picture thinking with an on-the-ground understanding of organisational reality and work strategically with key stake holders and allies.

This book is intended for chief diversity officers or diversity professionals, and anyone who wants to champion diversity and embed its objectives on his or her campus, whether at the level of senior administration, as members of campus organisations or committees, or as faculty, student affairs professionals or students taking a leadership role in making change.

This title is also available in a set with its companion volume, The Chief Diversity Officer.
