Many states throughout the U.S. have mandated that officers go through anti-bias training as part of sweeping police legislation.
Anti-bias training has been part of officer training in many jurisdictions, including Minneapolis and New York City. The effectiveness of these trainings has been drawn into question by independent studies, news outlets, and police organizations alike. More work is needed to understand the problem at hand and to build consensus on approaches to the training that can lead to meaningful changes in officer behavior and peaceful resolutions to potentially violent confrontations.
Please join the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum as thought leaders from law enforcement and civic organizations discuss the evolution and challenges of anti-bias training, as well as solutions to meet the need for enhanced training regimens in police academies.
Registration is free.
