Presented by Lt. Jim Glennon, this three-hour online training course is designed for officers of all ranks and assignments, and focuses on presenting students with simple yet realistic and effective techniques that will assist in overcoming maladaptive bias, utilize productive bias, and improve verbal and nonverbal communication skills immediately.
Implicit Bias is a very misinterpreted term. Often used to describe unconscious racism, implicit biases are, in actuality, much more than a singularly held prejudice. They are much more complex in scope. They are possessed by all human beings, and they exist for a purpose. The key questions regarding biases we hold unconsciously are: Why do we have them? Where do they come from? What are mine? And perhaps most importantly: Are they helpful or maladaptive when it comes to assessing, deciding, and behaving during interactions with other?
This online course will be led by Calibre’s Lt. Jim Glennon, who possesses a degree in Psychology, a Master’s in Justice Administration and has taught the complexity of human interaction and communication skills for over 25 years. He will dissect all biases, whether implicit or explicit, and examine any that are illicit in nature, particularly as they relate to race and cultural diversity…biases that could cause officers to unconsciously view certain people as inherently dangerous resulting in inaccurate assessments, flawed decisions, unprofessional behavior and unnecessary use of force.
Topic addressed will include:
- The Current State of Law Enforcement & Community Relations
- Diversity in Law Enforcement
- The Psychology of Bias and its Real-World Impact
- The Relationship Between the Unconscious & Implicit bias
- Bias Awareness for Successful Interactions
- Illicit Racial Bias and Decision Making
- Complete Communication: The Most Important Skill We Possess
- Force Mitigation Opportunities
- Affecting Organizational Change: It Starts at the Top
Note: Certificates will be provided
