This course provides critical examination of the study of crime, policing and justice in urban settings. Course materials examine contemporary policing-related issues that affect urban communities within a historical and sociological context. The course provides a deeper dive into the intersections of deviant behavior, oppression and the criminal justice system within the structures of class, race, gender, structural and institutional racism with law enforcement bodies, and power inequalities. Moving beyond issues within the current law enforcement structure, the helping and human services aspect of policing will be covered. Topics explored may include racial profiling, juvenile delinquency, media representations of crime and perpetrators, policing and implicit bias, the war on drugs and the impact to marginalized communities, sentencing and bias, and prisoner re-entry.

(New) Hartford – Wednesdays, 4:00pm to 6:30pm.

This course is also available in Storrs on Tuesday’s from 3:35pm to 6:05pm.
