Counter Bias Training Simulation (CBTSim) is a portable scenario-based training platform designed to reveal and overcome biases in police use-of-force. The goal is for trainees to respond based on the objective level of threat and not to cue off civilian characteristics (e.g. age, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status). CBTsim is the first implicit bias program that uses force-option simulation as a vehicle for learning that has practical implications for how police interact with civilians. The unique scenarios used in CBTsim were carefully designed to reflect the true dynamics of use-of-force confrontations, as determined from decades of scientific data about officer-involved shootings. As such, the program takes implicit bias training to a new level of authenticity and performance assessment.
