Albuquerque Police Department, Race and Cultural Relations Training: Evaluation Report.
Koehne, Fred W.; Wilson, Stephany S.
Seminars conducted for 90 officers were evaluated by personal observation of the seminars in progress and by a comparison of seminar participants and nonparticipants. The evaluation revealed that the initial strong impact of the seminars tended to dissipate rather quickly over time. Other major findings were that seminar participants tended to perceive greater negativism, hostility, and dissatisfaction toward police among minority groups and other segments of the community and appeared more attuned to socioeconomic factors affecting the city's crime problems.
