In collaboration with the IACP/UC Center for Police Research and Policy (http://www.theiacp.org/research), the Institute conducted a randomized controlled trial of implicit bias awareness training in the New York City Police Department. The evaluation assessed the effectiveness of the training in raising officers’ awareness of and knowledge about unconscious bias, providing officers the skills to manage their own unconscious biases, and in reducing the disparities in enforcement actions against various racial and ethnic groups (http://www.theiacp.org/researchcurrentwork).
