Annotation: This Trainer’s Guide assists trainers in delivering the accompanying PowerPoint presentations for the National Council on Crime and Delinquency’s (NCCD’s) curriculum on Immigrant Parents and Law Enforcement Promoting Community Safety Project (Community Safety Project).
Abstract: Intended for both immigrant families and law enforcement officers, the curriculum provides information on community resources and practical strategies that support immigrant parents in addressing the negative outside influences that may be affecting their children’s attitudes and behaviors. The curriculum also provides law enforcement agencies with training materials designed to develop and sustain the knowledge and relationships essential for working with immigrant populations to prevent violence among their youth. The curriculum is composed of two parts. “Part 1: Law Enforcement Training” is designed to be delivered by local service providers, teachers, religious leaders, staff from local community organizations, or leaders in the community. The goal of this training is to assist law enforcement officers in understanding local immigrant families‘ situation and vulnerabilities by focusing on the needs of their children. “Part 2: Parent Training” is designed to be delivered by law enforcement officers. It provides local immigrant parents with information on local community resources and strategies for preventing violence by their youth. It also provides law enforcement officers the opportunity to interact with and build relationships with the local immigrant community. The Trainer’s Guide presents an overview of the goals and content of the PowerPoint presentations, and each chapter provides input on strategies for customizing and delivering the training. Customization of the curriculum is critical, because it enables law enforcement and key stakeholders to include any community problems or needs.
