People from different races, ages, genders, religions, backgrounds, and income levels bring varied abilities, skills, and views to their communities. This issue offers information, ideas, and best practices for both improving diversity within police departments and increasing law enforcement’s ability to respond to all people effectively and impartially.

FEATURES

Common obstacles to recruiting minorities and females, such as local demographics, selection processes, and outreach methods, can be overcome with an understanding of what it takes and looking at those who have accomplished it for working models.

All people, including police administrators and officers, hold certain beliefs, values, and norms, often impressed upon them by parents, teachers, and peers in a processed called socialization. When a police officer allows internal stereotypes to overshadow their responsibility to all citizens, they can put their communities and departments in financial and social jeopardy.

Training programs reflecting the modern science of bias (explicit and implicit) have been emerging in many fields. The Fair and Impartial Policing (FIP) training program brings this important topic and the science behind it to police professionals.
