Implement far more stringent and documented processes/data collection (disaggregated by race) when force is used to increase accountability around use of force. Require current and prospective police officers to undergo regular and mandatory implicit racial bias testing and certification, including testing for bias in shoot/don’t shoot decision-making, and develop a clear policy for considering an officer’s level of racial bias in:

  • Law enforcement certification
  • The hiring process
  • Performance evaluations
  • Decisions about whether an officer should be deployed to communities of color
