Police officers in Sacramento, California, use virtual reality to learn how to deal with implicit biases such as skin color.
The virtual training mixes hypothetical situations that officers encounter on the street with lessons they learned from the regular training program. During the training, police officers face a civilian of another skin tone. Supervisors or other police agents analyze if the trainee reacts differently to a dark-skinned citizen compared to white citizen.
The virtual training takes place in Sacramento to give the police officers a realistic feeling. Afterwards, they repeat the virtual scenarios so that other agents can see what worked and what did not.
