Behavioral Science and Police presented by John O'Neill, PhD, BCBA-D, LABA and a related panel discussion to follow!

Abstract: Behavior analysts and police share many similar challenges in the areas of skill acquisition, maintenance and generalization, treatment integrity, decision-making, problem-solving, employment screening, attrition (i.e., burn-out), organizational leadership, and culture. I will discuss our applied research with police academies across the U.S. and provide examples of how behavioral science can be utilized to improve outcomes and develop collaborative relationships with police departments. I will also address common misconceptions about police training and identify some of the limitations of behavior analytic methods and procedures in the context of police academy training. Behavior analysis has a lot to offer law enforcement but we must adapt our approach in order to facilitate effective communication. Respect, trust, and shared values will be stressed as integral aspects of any successful collaborative effort.

Objectives: At the completion of this event, participants will be able to...

  1. Attendees will learn how behavioral science has been applied in police academy training. 
  2. Attendees will learn of other areas in which behavioral science can be readily applied to benefit police practices. 
  3. Attendees will learn of the limitations and challenges of incorporating behavioral science into a complex organizational structure.
