Procedural Justice relates to the idea of fairness between citizens and public safety agencies. It is a belief that the administration of justice, the allocation and use of departmental resources, and the resolution of conflicts in an impartial manner all produce trust and promote positive relationships between police/public safety and the communities they serve. 

The DSA Procedural Justice Training Institute has been constructed for college and university police/public safety agency leaders and is taught by expert faculty. From command staff to first line supervisors, college and university sworn and non-sworn leaders who participate in Institute courses will be prepared to create and strengthen the ethical culture within their public safety organization that will aid in ensuring fair and impartial campus policing practices. 

Organizational Ethics and Biased Policing (Virtual 2-day class)

Course Description: All campus police and public safety departments are living through a volatile time. Is your agency prepared to respond to questions about how you are working to ensure fair, impartial and ethical policing and public safety practices? Our instructors will review what is happening in today’s society and will guide leaders of these campus agencies through the process of developing new ideas and responses in line with 21st Century Policing/Public Safety practices.

Some of the key topics that will be covered include:

    • Explicit and Implicit Bias
    • The Science of Bias
    • Recognizing Identities 
    • Bias Policing Practices
    • Race and Policing
    • Ethics in Organizations
    • Procedural Justice and Fair and Impartial Policing Practices
    • Role of Law Enforcement/Security Leaders in Shaping Organizational Ethics
    • Implications for Public Safety
    • Constitutional Considerations
    • Managing Community Expectations
    • Considerations in Developing Fair and Impartial Policing Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)


This course will be taught by two experts: 

    • A former special agent in the FBI who is an expert in ethics, among other topics, and has served as an instructor for the FBI National Academy, The FBI’s International Academy, and the DEA’s International Academy. He has also instructed at federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies throughout North America, Asia, South America, and Europe; and
    • A former campus police Chief who is an expert in civil rights and has led two sworn and armed police agencies (and worked with dozens of others across the United States.)  She has expertise in developing best practice standard operating procedures related to fair and impartial policing practices in the postsecondary environment and in assisting agencies in implementing an ethical organizational culture that endeavors to be free from implicit and explicit biases. She has taught courses for individual colleges and universities, national courses across the United States, and has been a featured speaker in police academies. She holds an undergraduate degree in Human Resource Management and a graduate degree in Campus Public Safety. She is also a graduate of the FBI National Academy, session #235.
