Abstract [en]

Societal changes lead to changes within the police. Due to the increasing diversity the police are facing issues concerning multi-culturalization, both within the police organization and in the police education system. As the police are obliged to work actively against xenophobia and racism in order to promote an understanding of ethnic and cultural diversity, it is relevant to study how this is integrated into the education of future police officers. What is being taught and learnt about diversity, with a focus on religion, ethnicity and culture, and how is this done? In the article some preliminary findings from the first visits to the Police Academy are presented, for the purpose of illustrating how students view religion and its relevance for their future profession.
