Unconscious bias training is delivered to police officers at various stages of their career.

For front line officers this includes their initial police recruit training and their mandatory professional development. There is additional input for those attending specialist training – such as all new detectives and those joining Community Safety Units.

Training is a combination of face to face and online learning.
