Tentatively yes. I wish it wasn’t necessary, but it’s probably a good idea that anyone who is likely to find themselves in a position where their decisions and conduct have the potential to powerfully impact the lives of others become aware of their own biases and how those biases might manifest in interactions, on perceptions, and on decisions. It doesn’t matter whether the bias is racial, political, ethnic, gender-based or of any other kind. No one wants to admit they are bigoted, xenophobic, or misogynistic, but many of us have covert expectations of others that carry influence on our behavior. Blind spots and denial ultimately help no one or society. Learning to de-escalate, how best to approach the mentally ill or disabled - that seems to me to be critical in a public service position. I hope police departments do this willingly, but its important enough in my view to require they do so.
