One of our hopes for the second edition of “Coming Out From Behind The Badge” is that it will be used in courses on community policing, public administration, administration of justice, law enforcement academy programs, and LGBT Studies programs to better educate criminal justice and law enforcement professionals about the LGBT community and their LGBT colleagues. With that hope in mind, we’ve created an instructional guide for the book to help instructors facilitate discussions and activities related to the content of the book. The new Instructor Guide contains learning outcomes, learning activities, and critical thinking questions based on the contents of the book.
1. The student will understand the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity.
2. The student will identify LGBT historical events related to law enforcement.
3. The student will identify the challenges LGBT face with coming out about their sexuality or gender identity.
4. The student will identify strategies for creating an inclusive workplace for LGBT people.
The new edition of “Coming Out From Behind The Badge” has new sections about sexual orientation and gender identity, LGBT law enforcement related history, and expanded sections on how to come out and how to create an inclusive workplace. The Instructor Guide is perfect for any instructor using the book for a college class or training program. We will provide it free of charge to anyone who purchases a copy of the new book.
The Instructor Guide for “Coming Out From Behind The Badge” will be available when the book itself is released on January 1, 2016. Links to order a copy of the Instructor Guide will be available in our own Bookstore using the link at the top of the page.
“Coming Out From Behind The Badge – 2nd Edition” is set for release on January 1, 2016. You can pre-order a copy now from Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
