Fair & Impartial Policing (FIP) Training
Fair & Impartial Policing® (FIP) Training
The Michigan State Police (MSP) and the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES), in partnership with the Michigan Sheriff’s Association and the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police, will host training courses for law enforcement officers on fair & impartial (FIP) policing. The FIP perspective reflects a new way of thinking about the issue of biased policing. It is based on the science of bias, which tells us that bias is innate to all humans. Biased policing is not, as some contend, due to widespread racism in policing. FIP also fits squarely into the recommendations of both the Fostering Public Trust in Law Enforcement in Michigan report and the federal 21st Century Policing Task Force, and prepares agencies to engage in a meaningful way with the communities they serve.
