The Law Enforcement Contacts Policy and Data Review Committee (LECC) partners with the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) to offer regional, in-service, and new recruit academy training related to biased-based policing throughout the state of Oregon.
Since 2008, the LECC has offered “Tactical Ethics: Perspectives on Profiling” training to Oregon law enforcement. Tactical Ethics: Perspectives on Profiling, is taught by Oregon Law Enforcement officers. In the spring of 2011, a new training curriculum for Oregon law enforcement was completed and entitled, “Diversity and Profiling in Contemporary Policing.” Both curricula utilize interactive training scenarios and group dialogues to confront a number of complex issues that surround traffic stops, such as when race and other sensitive characteristics are inappropriate factors to utilize, the role of implicit bias, and what can be done to avoid an escalation in racially-charged stops. The training also includes several presentations and resources for deepening understanding of the history of racial oppression and our current racial tensions.
