Fair & Impartial Policing

Police – Investigator – Line-level

Training Programs

Police – Investigator – Line-level

(4 hours, 30 attendees)

This training especially for investigators provides FIP’s core content, including the nature of (and scientific evidence for) implicit biases, how implicit biases can impact an investigator in his/her professional capacity, the consequences of biased decisions/behaviors, and skills to reduce and manage implicit biases.

The research studies, examples, scenarios and media content emphasize the day-to-day work of investigators. Participants will be able to:

  • Understand that even well-intentioned people have biases, 
  • Understand how implicit biases impact on what we perceive/see and can (unless prevented) impact on what we do,
  • Understand that fair, impartial, and just investigations are in the best interest of the agency and the community, and 
  • Use tools that help him/her (1) recognize both conscious and implicit biases, and (2) reduce and manage biases.
