Assembly Bill 4343 would require county and municipal law enforcement authorities to develop cultural diversity training courses and adult corrections officers to complete them.
Advocates say the bill will “better prepare all local and county law enforcement agencies throughout New Jersey to handle racial, ethnic, religious and various other diversities within their respective communities.”
The bill would require the cultural diversity training courses to include instruction and exercises designed to promote positive interaction with the racial, ethnic, and religious communities within each department's respective jurisdiction, as well as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals within the community. Each municipal and county law enforcement officer would be required to participate in the course as part of in-service training.
The bill passed the Assembly on May 14, 2015.
