The philosophy of EDICT© helps companies become stronger, attract and maintain top-tiered talent, build employee engagement, increase innovation, and improve business performance!

Simply knowing that the ROI of diversity and inclusion as it relates to the diversity of race alone can be as high as 36% over the competition that remains homogeneous or lacks significant inclusion, plus the ROI on gender and other diversity and inclusion factors, should be inspiration enough; but we know it is not. That is where training in, and practice of EDICT© come into play. It will keep your organization on track and on focus to ensure that diversity, inclusion, and fair and equitable treatment are core values throughout all levels of your organization.

Impacts of Implicit Bias on Procedural Justice and Fair and Impartial Policing

What You Think Impacts Your Decisions Even Before You Put Your Uniform On

It is not uncommon for professions to lose their way and stray from their founding principles. In 1829, Sir Robert Peel the father of policing created the Nine Principles of Policing. He understood that to be effective in civil society, police must answer to the community and not the other way around. Treating people with respect, giving them agency (voice) during encounters, and not using excessive force is a significant part of professional policing that he created in these principles. They are as valid today as they were in 1829. 


In this course, police officers and other criminal justice professionals will gain a comprehensive knowledge of the foundations of police procedural justice and legitimacy in today’s environment. The focus will be on the impact of implicit bias and lack of cultural competency in the provision of fair and impartial policing services.

When left unchecked, biases can have a negative impact on performance, productivity, career, police effectiveness, and community relations. Participants will learn how to disrupt and mitigate the bias they bring to the job and those biases they develop that are displayed in enforcement encounters while ensuring laws are being enforced fairly.


The course will discuss community engagement, community-based policing, and decision-making that creates a foundation for fair and impartial policing as a tool to rebuild trust in the communities that police officers serve and create a safer environment for police officers and the public.
