Police agencies and community stakeholders recognize that even the best officers might manifest bias and, therefore, must be proactive to achieve fair and impartial policing.

The two-hour session will include a presentation on the (1) science of bias and (2) the implications of the science for police policy and practice. Attendees will learn about “explicit” and “implicit” bias, understand how each of these might manifest in policing, and learn what agencies must do to combat biased policing. Attendees also will learn about training the University of Cincinnati Police Department is providing its officers based on this science. Comments and questions are welcome.
