Beschreibung:
Abstract:<br /> In recent years, the proportion of the population with a migrant background has increased in the Federal Republic of<br /> Germany. We investigated whether young German police officers hold xenophobic attitudes at the beginning of their<br /> bachelor studies and how intercultural competence and communication training modules affect the development of those<br /> attitudes. In a 4-year longitudinal study, we assessed police officers’ xenophobic attitudes at the beginning of the first<br /> academic year, after basic study (year 1), after main study (year 2), and within the first year of professional practice (year<br /> 4). There was a significant decrease in xenophobic attitudes within the 3 years of professional education, followed by a<br /> slight increase within the first year of professional practice. Throughout the 4-year period, xenophobic attitudes<br /> decreased significantly, pointing to the effectiveness of the training modules integrated into the bachelor program and<br /> to the necessity to continue intercultural training within police departments
