Teaching police officers to recognize and overcome bias

Do you ever wonder who trains the trainers, for law enforcement officials?

Today and tomorrow, that's happening at Notre Dame College, where the police department is hosting a specialized training course. 

The goal is to give officers the tools they need regarding 'racial intelligence', as well as de-escalation and cultural diversity.. With hopes that tense situations in the field may not turn deadly.
