This course explains how the human brain develops and processes personal biases. Certain biases can have the appearance of racism. If our law enforcement community fails to grasp and understand specific biases that all humans possess, the appearance of racism, prejudice, or injustice may be the lens that our officers are viewed through. By recognizing biases and properly managing them, our decision making, investigative processes and communication styles will present themselves in a different light.
This course is presented in a pro-law enforcement platform, which explains cognitive processes that impact unfavorable decisions is a human challenge and not a law enforcement problem. By recognizing our human experience, we can be the pioneers to addressing and properly forming positive societal perceptions.
