Join us on November 17, 2023 at noon ET for an IPAC webinar: The Transformative Role Personnel Assessments Play in Police Reform
Session Description: This interactive training highlights the critical function of personnel assessments in pinpointing unconscious biases and championing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in recruitment, offering an in-depth exploration of historical policing paradigms and the pressing need for modern reform. Attendees will see the power of personnel assessments in spotting hidden biases and boosting fairness in police recruitment and retention through research, discussion, and real-world scenarios, highlighting the strong connection between assessments and improved officer training. We will also discuss how data can help create a more community-focused approach in policing. At the conclusion, participants will have a clear picture of the best ways to use these tools and some potential challenges to watch out for, ensuring they are well-prepared to make a positive impact in policing.
