Police nationwide discuss unconscious bias in policing

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Law enforcement officers around the country are lining up to learn about how unconscious bias impacts policing.

Such “implicit bias” training has gained traction among police departments in dozens of cities, including Philadelphia and Dallas, especially after recent killings of black men by white officers sparked a debate about the role race plays in policing.

The Los Angeles Police Department expects to send more than 5,000 officers through the Museum of Tolerance’s course over the next several years and is working to weave implicit bias lessons into existing training.

The training has increasingly been deployed by the Justice Department at troubled departments, but it’s taken on new importance since the uproar over police tactics after the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in New York.
