Understanding Diversity

Dealing with diverse communities is a fundamental part of law enforcement. 

At HSM Training we realise that this can often be a topic which causes problems for staff both in the work place and in customer facing roles.

Our diversity courses provide students with an environment in which they can learn the about this topic, in a safe, but challenging and thought-provoking way. Courses include the underpinning psychology and relevant role plays. Courses also focus on the use of language, equipping students with a better understanding of the appropriate use of language. 

The courses are not intended to address issues pertaining to any particular group or section within society,  but focus on how and why people behave in the way they do. This approach means that officers are better equipped to deal with whatever aspect of diversity they encounter and not just how to engage with one specific group,


This training provides officers with the skills necessary to deal more effectively with people regardless of who they are, where they come from, or their values and beliefs.

These courses will have significant benefit for police services where there are large diverse communities within their area of responsibility.  


Practical Ethics for Law Enforcement

There is significant pressure on police officers to act in an ethical manner and to make ethically based decisions. Our ethics courses provide officers with a clear understanding of the nature or ethics and morals, the differences between the two, and different approaches to making ethical decisions.
