A leading provider of quality interactive online education, Jones Knowledge Group(R) (JKG(R)) today announced it has signed a deal to bring its new Understanding Islam: An Introduction to police officers in the Metropolitan Police (MPS) Territorial Police Command in London.

The 100% online course is designed for corporations, school districts, governmental organizations, including law enforcement agencies, and other learners who would benefit from understanding the historical context of Islam, the complexities of the culture, and gain the tools necessary to improve their relations with Muslims worldwide.
