Media Education for Law Enforcement Officers

Media literacy instructional practices help police instructors use video to build critical thinking and communication skills

Police instructors learn to use media literacy instructional practices to identify and disrupt patterns of bias and stereotypes. They deepen awareness of language and power relationships as they embody forms of dehumanizing and systemic racism as well as class and gender bias.

Instructors learn practical strategies to help them use video and digital media for learning purposes.

Created in collaboration with the Austin Police Academy, Austin TX. 

This training program is evidence-based practice, which includes the integration of expertise/expert opinion; knowledge, judgment, and critical reasoning acquired through training and professional experiences; and information gathered from data and observations collected in the field.
