Abstract:

This report looks at police-minority group relations with recommendations for future program improvement. Since unrealistic expectations often accompany police-community relations programs such programs can not be considered the solution to society's ill. At best, they can be expected to ameliorate the distrust and fear between antagonistic groups. Public attitudes about police conduct. The handling of citizens complaints, police field activities, police training, and internal racial discrimination within police agencies are examined as component social interactions and reactions of police-community relations.
