About this course:

Hollywood has never been afraid to sacrifice realism for the sake of an entertaining story. This course cuts to the chase and shows you what actual police work is really like. Discussions include police culture and psychology, the use of force, and how the mentally ill and homeless complicate law enforcement. Warning: graphic videos of shootings will be shown.
