Fair & Impartial Policing

November 9, 2020 - November 10, 2020


FIP TOT_Booster TOT Flyer (Topeka PD)

The Fair & Impartial Policing curricula is based on the science of implicit bias. Implicit biases can impact what people perceive and do, even in people who consciously hold non-prejudiced attitudes. The implication of the science of bias is that even the best law enforcement officers may manifest bias because they are human, and even the best agencies will have biased policing because they hire humans.
The FIP Basic Training of Trainers course allows teams of trainers to learn to implement both the patrol officers’ and first-line supervisors’ curricula. This 2-day TOT “walks” trainers through every aspect of the FIP Training Program and provides opportunities to practice teaching both curricula.

The FIP Booster Training of Trainers course is a 3-hour course that will enable agency instructors to implement the NEW FIP 4- hour Booster Training. This course should be provided to officers and first-line supervisors who have already had the basic FIP course. The core concepts from the basis FIP training are reviewed, but with new science, new forms of biases, and new applications. This training includes high-quality movie vignettes that allow the participants to apply the key FIP principles to common policing situations.
At the conclusion of the TOT, trainers will be able to:
• Understand and effectively communicate the science of implicit bias.
• Understand and effectively communicate that fair and impartial policing
leads to safe, effective and just policing.
• Use the FIP Training curricula to teach academy recruits and patrol
officers and first-line supervisors to: (1) recognize their conscious and implicit biases and (2) implement skills to promote fair and impartial
policing in their daily work.
