Ethic Awareness Instructor

          The Ethical Awareness Instructor course is an essential     
          functional part of the Law Enforcement Officers             
          Facilitator's Program.  This program aims at the hearts and 
          the minds of the law enforcement personnel to gain a solid  
          commitment to ethics both personal and organizational.  Law 
          enforcement personnel are trained to conduct workshops      
          which are a productive way to reduce stress, conflict,      
          community misunderstanding, and litigation brought on by    
          the indifference of some public service personnel to the    
          human needs of their clients. At the bottom of the ethical  
          awareness experience is the goal of changing undesired      
          attitudes and behaviors while reinforcing proper and        
          acceptable performance.  In policing it is often the        
          insensitive, unjudicial, and inhumane use of power that     
          causes a standing confrontation between the police and the  
          members of the community.  The workshop experience has been 
          proven to sensitize law enforcement personnel to the        
          problem and to the need for fair and impartial treatment of 
          all citizens.
