Major city agencies that we have served include: Austin, Boston, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami-Dade, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Nashville, New York, Ottawa (Canada), Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Jose, Seattle, and Toronto to name a few. Training programs have been implemented with state police organizations (e.g. Colorado State Police, Michigan State Police), university police (e.g. State University of New York, University of Massachusetts, Virginia Commonwealth University) and regional and state law enforcement academies (e.g. in Kansas, Nebraska, New York, Virginia, South Carolina). Fair & Impartial Policing® has been integrated into the IACP’s Leadership of Police Organizations (LPO) and Women’s Leadership Institute (WLI) training programs. Fair & Impartial Policing® is presented each year at the FBI National Academy and at PERF’s Senior Management Institute for Police (SMIP).

The 2018 Curriculum Update

We have completed a comprehensive review and revision of our implicit-bias-awareness curricula that was finalized in early 2018. The key changes include a complete update of the science of human bias to incorporate current research findings in this area and (a) expanding our coverage of types of biases (beyond race/ethnicity), (b) discussing additional ways bias can manifest in policing (e.g., confirmation, attention, and outgroup bias), (c) enhancing our practical application exercises to convey relevance to all aspects of policing, and (d) improving the adult learning techniques that promote participant engagement and interest.

The Five Fair & Impartial Policing Curricula

The Fair & Impartial Policing© perspective has been placed into five implicit-bias-awareness curricula. There is a 1.5-day session for command-level personnel (or a “command-community” version that involves command personnel and community stakeholders). There are separate one-day versions for patrol officers, first-line supervisors and mid managers. During the 2.5-day Training-of-Trainers (TOT) session agency trainers can learn to implement the patrol and supervisor curricula in their own agencies/academies.

Our trainers are sworn police professionals and they are some of the top trainers in the nation in terms of their ability to engage police audiences. They receive rave reviews for their training sessions on this controversial and sensitive topic. At every session, a vast majority of the ratings are a “5” on a scale from 1 to 5.
