This week, police officers in Virginia are taking part in a new training program designed to help police build safer communities while treating citizens fairly. Participating officers have come from 15 area law enforcement agencies and will share what they learn with their departments upon returning. On Monday, instructors taught officers about fair and impartial policing. Officers were told to be aware of implicit biases they may hold against people while still treating everyone fairly. Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring also met with the training group and discussed the necessity of building trust within a community, which creates a safer environment for its citizens as well as its officers.
