  • Does your force (at the time of this request) provide unconscious bias training to officers?
  • If the training has ceased, please provide the date
  • How many officers received unconscious bias training in each of the following years: 2021 (up to this request), 2020, 2019 and 2018.


Please find attached our response.

The attached figures are slightly different to those previously published, this is likely to be because more NCALT records have migrated on to our recording system.  The training in the main has been delivered by NCALT.

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
