Last week, California Highway Patrol (CHP) personnel underwent an implicit bias training co-designed by US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty member Jennifer Eberhardt. The course, Principled Policing: Procedural Justice and Implicit Bias, has spread quickly across California. Since being introduction last fall, it has been offered to command staff from 28 law enforcement agencies across the state.
Principled Policing was commissioned by the California Office of the Attorney General. Its purpose, according to an announcement from the Attorney General’s office, is “to help law enforcement officers overcome barriers to neutral policing and rebuild the relationship of trust between law enforcement and the community.”
