Cadets have spent over 50 hours (the equivalent of an entire college semester course) interviewing community members, compiling video, and gathering off-camera comments with community leaders and community members. 


Officials said, "The Chattanooga Police Department developed the Community Immersion Project in response to community expectations of a more organic, dynamic and unfiltered method of learning about our community. The project is designed to immerse future police officers in specific Chattanooga cultures, to learn directly from the community about that culture and then to teach us – the community and each other – about that specific culture in Chattanooga."


This is the schedule:


3:00 – 3:50 Welcome/Introduction 
4:00 – 4:30 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community  
4:40 – 5:10 Intellectually & Developmentally Disabled & Mental Health Consumers Community 
5:20 – 5:50 Hispanic Community 
6:00 – 6:30 African American Community
