The Fort Myers Police Department sponsored a one-and-a-half-day program on Fair & Impartial Policing at the City Pier building on Thursday and Friday November 1st and 2nd. The seminars were conducted by Dr. Lorie Fridell, a professor of criminology at the University of South Florida and the CEO of FIP, LLC. She is recognized as a national expert on biased policing and is the author of numerous publications addressing implicit bias. The seminars included city of Fort Myers directors and officials, sworn members of the FMPD and community leaders. Fair and Impartial Policing (FIP) criteria is based upon the science of implicit bias and how it can affect what people perceive and do in the course of their official duties. The implication is that even the best law enforcement officers may experience bias because they are human. The FIP training is another building block in stronger community relationships between the police department and the citizens they serve. Additional sessions are planned as a continuing education process for members of the FMPD and city administrators.
