Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Title II of the ADA provides that no qualified person with a disability shall, by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefit of the service, programs, or activities of a public entity because of a person’s disability

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because Title II of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities by public entities. It ensures that individuals with disabilities have equal access to and participation in public services, programs, and activities. This means that public entities cannot exclude or deny benefits to someone solely based on their disability.

    A person is considered to have a “disability” if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such an impairment, or is regarded as having such impairment

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because it accurately defines the criteria for determining whether a person has a disability. According to the definition provided, a person is considered to have a disability if they have a physical or mental impairment that significantly restricts one or more major life activities. Additionally, if a person has a history of such impairment or is perceived to have one, they are also considered to have a disability.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Plaintiffs have brought claims in federal courts against police officers and their law enforcement agencies arising out of arrests using three basic theories

    • A.

      Failure to train, wrongful arrest, failure to reasonably accommodate during an arrest

    • B.

      Thomas the train, puddins huge head, the mayor of doucheane

    • C.

      Failure to arrest, lack of training, objectively reasonable accommodations

    • D.

      Unreasonable accommodations, failure to train, wrongful arrest

    Correct Answer
    A. Failure to train, wrongful arrest, failure to reasonably accommodate during an arrest
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Failure to train, wrongful arrest, failure to reasonably accommodate during an arrest." This answer accurately identifies the three basic theories that plaintiffs have brought claims against police officers and their law enforcement agencies for. These theories include the failure to provide proper training to officers, wrongful arrests, and the failure to reasonably accommodate individuals during an arrest.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Police Officers are required by the ADA to ensure effective communication to individuals who are deaf or hard of haring.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates that police officers must ensure effective communication to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. This means that officers need to provide appropriate accommodations, such as sign language interpreters or written communication, to ensure effective interaction with individuals who have hearing disabilities. By doing so, law enforcement agencies can ensure equal access to justice and protect the rights of individuals with disabilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    People whose disability is known as a Mental retardation have low IQ’s and never make good witnesses

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. Mental retardation, also known as intellectual disability, does not necessarily mean that a person has a low IQ or cannot be a good witness. While some individuals with intellectual disabilities may have lower cognitive abilities, it does not mean they are incapable of being reliable witnesses. Each individual should be assessed on a case-by-case basis, taking into account their specific abilities and limitations. It is important to avoid generalizations and assumptions about individuals with disabilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A law enforcement agency receives a call from a woman complaining that someone has broken into her residence.  The police department keeps a list of dwellings where people with AIDS are known to reside.  The woman’s residence is on the list because her son has AIDS.  Police fail to respond to her call, because they fear catching the HIV virus.  Have the officers discriminated against her based on her association with an individual who has AIDS

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The officers have discriminated against the woman based on her association with an individual who has AIDS. This is evident from the fact that the police failed to respond to her call due to their fear of catching the HIV virus. By not providing the same level of service and protection to the woman solely because of her association with someone with AIDS, the officers have engaged in discriminatory behavior.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The ADA does not prevent police officers from responding appropriately to real threats to health or safety, even if an individual’s actions are a result of her disability

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) does not restrict police officers from taking appropriate action to address genuine threats to health or safety, even if the person's actions are influenced by their disability. This means that law enforcement can respond accordingly to situations where there is a real danger, regardless of whether the individual's disability contributed to their behavior.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A police officer engaged in a lawful traffic stop and can order the driver out of the car without further justification

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A police officer can order a driver out of the car during a lawful traffic stop without further justification because it is considered a reasonable safety precaution. This allows the officer to maintain control of the situation and ensure their own safety as well as the safety of others. Additionally, it allows the officer to conduct a more thorough investigation if necessary.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    A police officer that engages on a lawful traffic stop cannot order the passenger out of the car unless the officer has probable cause to believe the passenger has done something wrong.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A police officer that engages in a lawful traffic stop does have the authority to order the passenger out of the car, even without probable cause to believe the passenger has done something wrong. This is because during a traffic stop, the officer's primary concern is for their safety, and ordering the passenger out of the car allows the officer to maintain control of the situation and ensure their own safety.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Bias based policing is an illegal and ineffective practice because

    • A.

      It limits an officer's effectiveness by not fully acknowledging that criminal behavior is found in all races and ethnicities

    • B.

      Sound research shows that bias-based interdiction of drug traffickers results in failure to apprehend significant numbers of criminals and substantial amounts of illegal drugs

    • C.

      It negatively impacts personal integrity and the public perception of law enforcement

    • D.

      It violates fundamental constitutional principles

    • E.

      It may lead to expensive litigation and punitive damages against departments and individual officers

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. It limits an officer's effectiveness by not fully acknowledging that criminal behavior is found in all races and ethnicities
    B. Sound research shows that bias-based interdiction of drug traffickers results in failure to apprehend significant numbers of criminals and substantial amounts of illegal drugs
    C. It negatively impacts personal integrity and the public perception of law enforcement
    D. It violates fundamental constitutional principles
    E. It may lead to expensive litigation and punitive damages against departments and individual officers
    Explanation
    Bias-based policing is considered illegal and ineffective because it fails to recognize that criminal behavior exists across all races and ethnicities. Research has shown that when law enforcement practices bias-based interdiction of drug traffickers, it often leads to a failure in apprehending a significant number of criminals and seizing substantial amounts of illegal drugs. Additionally, bias-based policing negatively impacts personal integrity and public perception of law enforcement. It is also a violation of fundamental constitutional principles. Furthermore, engaging in bias-based policing can result in costly litigation and punitive damages against both police departments and individual officers.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    A police officer issues a person a traffic citation.  Exceptions to the 4th amendment allow the officer to search the vehicle before letting the person go

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Exceptions to the 4th amendment do not allow a police officer to search a vehicle simply because they issued a traffic citation. The 4th amendment protects against unreasonable searches and seizures, and there are specific criteria and exceptions that must be met for a search to be considered legal. Issuing a traffic citation alone does not provide justification for a search without consent or a warrant. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    While parked by the side of 9th West an officer notices that all vehicles on the road are exceeding the posted speed limit.  The officer can stop any of the speeding vehicles, but decided to use race or ethnicity to decide who to stop.  This is called what?

    • A.

      Deductive reasoning

    • B.

      Racial diversity

    • C.

      Racial profiling

    • D.

      Objective reasonableness

    • E.

      Criminal profiling

    Correct Answer
    C. Racial profiling
    Explanation
    Racial profiling is the correct answer because it refers to the practice of using race or ethnicity as a basis for law enforcement decisions, such as who to stop or search. In this scenario, the officer is using race or ethnicity to decide which speeding vehicles to stop, which is an example of racial profiling. Deductive reasoning refers to logical reasoning based on premises and conclusions, racial diversity refers to the variety of races within a group, objective reasonableness refers to a legal standard for evaluating an officer's actions, and criminal profiling refers to the practice of identifying characteristics of potential criminals based on behavior patterns.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Criminal profiling is

    • A.

      Not the same thing as either biased-based policing or racial profiling

    • B.

      Occurs when police use racial or ethnic characteristics in stopping an individual because his description matches that of an actual suspect

    • C.

      Race or ethnicity functions as the equivalent of hair color, height or weight which can be used in combination with other factors to paint a more accurate portrait of a suspected criminal

    • D.

      Pumpkin head harvey is attacked because of the size of his huge melon

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Not the same thing as either biased-based policing or racial profiling
    B. Occurs when police use racial or ethnic characteristics in stopping an individual because his description matches that of an actual suspect
    C. Race or ethnicity functions as the equivalent of hair color, height or weight which can be used in combination with other factors to paint a more accurate portrait of a suspected criminal
    Explanation
    The correct answer explains that criminal profiling is different from biased-based policing or racial profiling. It further states that racial or ethnic characteristics are used by police in stopping an individual if their description matches that of an actual suspect. This is because race or ethnicity can be considered as factors, similar to hair color, height, or weight, that can contribute to a more accurate profile of a suspected criminal. The statement about "pumpkin head Harvey" being attacked because of the size of his huge melon is unrelated to the explanation.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    You are authorized to frisk a person for illicit drugs provided that you have reasonable articulable suspicion that the person is carrying concealed drugs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Frisking a person for illicit drugs requires more than just reasonable articulable suspicion. In order to legally frisk someone, law enforcement officers must have probable cause to believe that the person is armed and dangerous. Reasonable articulable suspicion alone is not enough to justify a frisk for drugs.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    If reasonable in scope, traffic stop based on probable cause or reasonable suspicion that the driver violated applicable traffic and equipment regulations is lawful under the 4th amendment

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because the 4th amendment allows law enforcement to conduct a traffic stop if they have probable cause or reasonable suspicion that the driver has violated traffic and equipment regulations. This means that as long as the stop is within a reasonable scope and there is a valid reason to believe that a violation has occurred, the stop is considered lawful under the 4th amendment.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    When Law enforcement practices are perceived to be biased or unfair, the general public, and especially minority communities, are less willing to trust and confide in officers, report crimes, be witnesses at trials, or serve on juries

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When law enforcement practices are perceived to be biased or unfair, it creates a lack of trust and confidence in officers among the general public, particularly among minority communities. This lack of trust leads to a decrease in reporting crimes, reluctance to serve as witnesses in trials, and unwillingness to serve on juries. This can have a detrimental impact on the criminal justice system as it relies on the cooperation and participation of the public to effectively carry out its functions.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    If an officer has probable cause to search a car; she can search the whole car for probable cause items without a warrant

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If an officer has probable cause to search a car, they are allowed to search the entire car without a warrant. Probable cause refers to having enough evidence or reasonable belief that a crime has been committed or that there is evidence of a crime in the car. This exception to the warrant requirement allows law enforcement officers to quickly search a vehicle when they have sufficient reason to believe that it contains illegal items or evidence.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    When making decisions about dealing with a citizen, a police officer should generally focus on the person’s conduct rater than their physical characteristics such as skin and color

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Police officers should generally focus on a person's conduct rather than their physical characteristics such as skin color when making decisions about dealing with a citizen. This means that the officer should base their actions and decisions on the behavior and actions of the individual, rather than making judgments or assumptions based on their appearance. This approach promotes fairness, equality, and the avoidance of discriminatory practices in law enforcement.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    You are allowed to consider a person’s race or ethnicity while drawing inference of criminal activities as long as you can come to reliable statistics that show the person of a given race or ethnicity is more likely than others to be arrested

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it is not ethical or legal to consider a person's race or ethnicity when drawing inferences about criminal activities. It is discriminatory and goes against principles of fairness and equality. Inferences should be based on individual behavior and evidence, rather than generalizations about race or ethnicity.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Because gangs may be comprised of persons of a particular racial or ethnic type, Police officers are permitted to consider a person’s race to determine the likelihood that the person is a member of a gang

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false. Police officers are not permitted to consider a person's race to determine the likelihood that the person is a member of a gang. Racial profiling is considered discriminatory and goes against the principles of equality and fairness. Law enforcement should focus on evidence-based practices and individual behavior rather than making assumptions based on race or ethnicity.

    Racial profiling and biased based policing violate fundamental constitutional principles including those found in which amendments in the US constitution?

    • A.

      2nd

    • B.

      4th

    • C.

      8th

    • D.

      10th

    • E.

      14th

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. 4th
    E. 14th
    Explanation
    Racial profiling and biased based policing violate the fundamental constitutional principles found in the 4th and 14th amendments of the US Constitution. The 4th amendment protects against unreasonable searches and seizures, while the 14th amendment guarantees equal protection under the law. Racial profiling and biased based policing involve targeting individuals based on their race or ethnicity, which goes against the principles of equal protection and can result in unreasonable searches and seizures.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Information that would lead an objectively reasonable officer to suspect that a crime has possibly been committed and a particular suspect might have committed the crime or may be about to commit the crime is known as what

    • A.

      Probable cause

    • B.

      Objective reasonableness

    • C.

      Reasonable suspicion

    • D.

      Reasonable grounds

    • E.

      Reasonable reasonableness

    Correct Answer
    C. Reasonable suspicion
    Explanation
    Reasonable suspicion is the correct answer because it refers to the information that would lead a reasonable officer to suspect that a crime has possibly been committed and a particular suspect might have committed or is about to commit the crime. This standard is lower than probable cause but still requires specific and articulable facts that justify the suspicion. It is a key concept in criminal law and is often used as a basis for conducting a brief investigative stop or detention.

    • A.

      USC 1983

    • B.

      Civil rights act

    • C.

      The Bill of Rights

    • D.

      US Constitution

    • E.

      ADA

    Correct Answer
    B. Civil rights act
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the civil rights act because it is a federal law that specifically addresses and protects against unlawful sexual harassment. The civil rights act prohibits discrimination based on sex and includes provisions that prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace, ensuring that individuals are protected from this form of unlawful behavior. The other options mentioned, such as USC 1983, The Bill of Rights, US Constitution, and ADA, do not specifically focus on sexual harassment or provide the same level of protection against it.

This means that individuals cannot be discriminated against based on these characteristics in areas such as employment, housing, and public accommodations. These protected classes are established to ensure equal treatment and opportunities for individuals belonging to these categories.

    • E.

      Hostile work environment

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Quid pro quo
    E. Hostile work environment

    The correct answer is quid pro quo and hostile work environment. Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when a person in a position of power requests sexual favors in exchange for employment benefits. On the other hand, a hostile work environment refers to a workplace where unwelcome sexual advances, comments, or conduct create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive atmosphere. Both types of sexual harassment are prohibited and can have serious consequences for the individuals involved and the organization.

    Explanation
    The statement is false because a person can make a claim of sexual harassment regardless of the sex of the harasser or the targeted employee. Sexual harassment is not limited to opposite-sex situations and can occur between individuals of the same sex as well. It is important to address and take action against all forms of sexual harassment, regardless of the genders involved.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

This means that it is the supervisor's duty to address and take appropriate action when they become aware of any form of harassment occurring within their jurisdiction. Failure to do so goes against the policies set by the city and the department, indicating a violation.

    Retaliation is threatening or disciplining the employee who made the claim of harassment

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Retaliation refers to the act of taking revenge or punishing an employee who has reported or made a claim of harassment. It involves threatening or disciplining the employee in response to their complaint. This can include actions such as demotion, termination, or creating a hostile work environment. Retaliation is considered a violation of employment laws and policies as it discourages employees from reporting harassment and creates a culture of fear and intimidation. Therefore, the given statement that retaliation involves threatening or disciplining the employee who made the claim of harassment is true.

    In Evaluating whether sexual harassment has occurred,  the intent of the alleged harasser must be considered

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In evaluating whether sexual harassment has occurred, the intent of the alleged harasser is not a determining factor. The focus is on the impact of the behavior on the victim, rather than the intentions of the harasser. Even if the harasser did not intend to cause harm, if their actions create a hostile or offensive environment for the victim, it can still be considered as sexual harassment. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Conduct in violation of city and department policy outside work is never considered to constitute harassment or discrimination

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Conduct in violation of city and department policy outside of work can still be considered harassment or discrimination. Just because the conduct occurs outside of work does not absolve the individual from potential consequences or disciplinary actions. Employers have the right to hold their employees accountable for their actions, even if they occur outside of the workplace, especially if those actions are in violation of company policies. Therefore, the statement that such conduct is never considered harassment or discrimination is false.

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Discriminatory practices in employment involve making decisions based on stereotypes or assumptions about certain characteristics of individuals, such as their race, sex, age, religion, or ethnic group. This means that it is indeed a discriminatory practice to base employment decisions on these factors.
