Implicit Bias in Policing – Fact and Fiction
As a result of a movement created on a false narrative, a cacophony of voices has emerged claiming “systemic institutional racism” in policing in America driven by bias and prejudice. Since notions of systemic explicit bias can be easily “debunked” by the data, proponents of the “systemic racism” argument have now turned to the concept of “implicit bias” to support the argument police are racist … but they just don’t know it. Voices on the other side of this argument are quick to dismiss the implicit bias argument, claiming implicit bias in policing is not scientific and totally unsupported by the data. As is often the case, the truth is a point in-between.
Join our panel for this four-hour LEA ONE online presentation in which we will discuss:
- What is implicit bias?
- What is the value of the information is provided by the Harvard IAT Study?
- Is there a way to accurately test for implicit bias?
- What are the limitations of implicit bias testing?
- Can implicit bias be “trained out” of a person?
- What is the role of implicit bias in the use of force by police?
- What is the role of implicit bias in making Terry Stops and Traffic Stops by police?
- How is implicit bias being misused to drive a political agenda?
This is not a “webinar.” This is a hybrid online course on LEARN BLUE that combines a four-hour live online presentation with resources in the classroom space in the LEARN BLUE online learning portal. All students will be required to complete both components of the course before receiving a certificate of completion.
