Community-Oriented Policing for CVE Capacity: Adopting the Ethos through Enhanced Training

This publication expands upon the links between a heavy-handed police force as a key driver of radicalization to violent extremism.

In the hopes of shifting that attitude and behavior of international law enforcement training institutions, the authors introduce additional knowledge and skills-based sessions of instruction that can be included in the larger curriculum, as well as adult-learning principles and andragogical good practice, to support the development of a community-oriented ethos throughout policing services.
