The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) supported the development of two training programs based on the Fair & Impartial Policing perspective—one for recruits/patrol officers and one for first-line supervisors.  The Fair & Impartial Policing Train-the-Trainer Program (TOT) allows teams of trainers, from academies and other law enforcement organizations, to learn to implement curricula for new recruits, in-service training, and first-line supervisors. This 2.5 day TOT “walks” trainers through every aspect of the Fair & Impartial Policing Training Program and provides opportunities to “practice” teaching the modules of both curricula. Participants will receive both the recruit/in-service and the first-line supervisors’ curricula, including comprehensive lesson plans, trainers’ guide, and Power Point presentations to implement these two training programs.


At the conclusion of the TOT program, trainers will be able to:

  • Understand and effectively communicate the science of implicit bias and the fact that it can impact what we perceive/see and can impact what we do;
  • Understand and effectively communicate that fair & impartial policing leads to effective policing;
  • Use the Fair and Impartial Training curricula to teach new recruits, veteran in-service personnel, and first-line supervisors to (1) recognize their conscious and implicit biases; (2) implement “controlled” (unbiased) behavioral responses; and (3) promote fair and impartial policing in their daily work.


Who should attend?

 Experienced trainers/presenters who are respected by their peers and possess strong facilitation skills.  This is not a course for the untested, aspiring trainer or someone who is not willing to embrace the FIP perspective.   This is a team-taught curriculum, thus agencies are strongly encouraged to commit a minimum of two instructors to the course.


Includes:  bound instructor manual, curricula for recruit/in-service and first-line supervisor, copies of scenarios and other handouts, power points for implementing sessions.
