Abstract (summary)

This thesis examines the viewpoints of 17 Cambodian-Americans living in Long Beach, California. Using the qualitative method of focus group interviewing and content analysis, the findings reveal several major themes: Cambodian-Americans feel that there should be more Cambodian officers, mandatory cultural sensitivity training, and more community policing efforts. These results provide an insight into a Cambodian point of view toward law enforcement.
