FIP Trains Deputies at OCSO

FIP partnered with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Florida to provide every deputy implicit-bias-awareness training. Hear from deputies and instructors on how implicit bias affects community members, deputies, and law enforcement organizations.

“Many of you have seen news reports of community members calling the police because men of color are wearing protective face coverings in stores or on the streets. These calls and the police responses to them are producing claims of “racial profiling.” Some men of color report they are now reticent to wear PPE in public despite the fact that people of color are disproportionately infected by Covid-19.

Our profession has led many others in recognizing how implicit associations can impact community members and our own officers. The 8-minute training video found above these calls for service in the context of the science of bias, and provides guidance on the police response.

Developed as a service by Fair and Impartial Policing, LLC and narrated by retired Chief Noble Wray, this video is designed, not just for police departments that have implemented implicit-bias-awareness training (reinforcing that training), but also for those that have yet to provide such training to their personnel.

Fair and Impartial Policing

Fair & Impartial Policing®, LLC is the #1 provider of implicit-bias-awareness training for law enforcement in North America. The state-of-the-art Fair & Impartial Policing® training program is about how the mind works. There is no finger-pointing or blame. Instead, we discuss how implicit biases can impact well-intentioned individuals outside their conscious awareness. A key strength of our program is our ability to reduce the defensiveness around this topic that many law enforcement officers may bring into the classroom.

In our implicit-bias-awareness curricula, we convey the science of bias and discuss the negative consequences of letting “hidden biases” impact perceptions and behavior and, most importantly, we teach police professionals the skills that they need to reduce and manage their biases. Those skills will not keep them from doing their important job of crime control; instead the skills will enhance their ability to engage in that important work more safely, justly and effectively. Those skills will also further an agency’s efforts to strengthen the relationship between the department and the diverse communities that it serves. Check out the different types of fair and impartial trainings we offer!



FIP offers five implicit-bias police training courses that reflect the science-based, fair and impartial policing perspective.
