Description

This document provides a full report of the evaluation of the Effective Police Interactions with Youth patrol officer training curriculum funded by the JJAC. The purpose of this curriculum is to reduce the likelihood that interactions between police officers and young people will have negative outcomes and/or result in police action. Certified police trainers taught officers about disproportionate minority contact with the juvenile justice system (DMC), adolescent brain development and police/youth relations through a variety of instructional techniques including slide presentations, video clips, class discussions, small group activities, and individual activities. The evaluation involved administering pre-test, post-test and follow-up surveys to patrol officer trainees and a control group of officers to assess for significant change in their level of knowledge about and attitudes toward youth following the one-day training. This report was prepared by the University of Connecticut Center for Applied Research in Human Development.
