Webinar- Situational Decision-Making: A New Training to Improve Policing
The Crime Lab hosted a webinar on the findings of our recently released study, A Cognitive View of Policing, which evaluated a pilot of the Situational Decision-Making (Sit-D) police training program.
The webinar provides an in-depth review of the study’s findings and explores Sit-D’s potential to reduce adverse policing outcomes while simultaneously increasing community and officer safety. The panel includes members of the research team and the Chicago Police Department who led the training.
