Yes. Redmond Police Officers also receive training on the above topics in the Washington State Basic Law Enforcement Academy and in annual refresher trainings and other professional development courses. Every City of Redmond employee, including police employees, receive ongoing training on implicit bias, racism and prejudice. Most recently, in 2019, every employee completed a course titled “Deconstructing our Bias” taught by Chanin Kelly-Rae, a former Statewide Diversity Manager for the State of Washington. This course focused on ensuring our work for the community is always mindful of diversity, equity and inclusion for all. The City of Redmond is committed to establishing equity and inclusion training on topics including implicit bias to all new employees and maintaining that training throughout an employee’s career.
