A total of 5 doctoral graduates are participating in 2 research teams in 2022.

Team 1 - The Ethical Concerns of Implicit Bias in American Policing

Team Leader:  Dr. Steven Campas - Team Member:  Dr. Joshua Hadnot

Abstract:  In our society, there is the perception of stereotyping by police officers and confidence in their ability to enforce the law equally. As a result, there are societal implications that discrimination and racial prejudices exist specifically among law enforcement officers, creating mistrust between community members and law enforcement officers.  The value of the study is to help law enforcement leaders respond to the perception of communities that members of law enforcement organizations are racist and improve relations with communities about the motive of police officers to enforce the law with equity and fairness. In addition, do law enforcement organizations have policies, procedures, and training to address the perception of racism and implicit bias policing proactively.
