Hate Crimes Training

Rohan Naik filed this request with the Department of Commerce and Insurance of Tennessee.


From: Carlton Purvis

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Tennessee's Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all training materials regarding hate crimes or bias crimes used to educate or train would-be police officers attending the Basic Police School at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy. My request covers any written, visual, or digital materials used for this instruction.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 7 business days, as the statute requires.

Please note that I am a citizen of Tennessee, and am using MuckRock's services to help manage and track my request.

Thank you, Kevin. Appreciate your help.

Do you know how much time this training takes up?

From: Kevin Walters

This varies by academy; TLETA teaches a 5-hour block within its 30-hour Human Relations curriculum.
