This module incorporates three general learning goals: 1) educating students on the concepts of building relationships of trust and their importance for police legitimacy and crime reduction in the community, 2) informing students about best practices for building relationships of trust for line officers and community oriented policing specialists, and 3) outlining potential challenges for building relationships of trust programs and ways those challenges can be overcome.
