# We asked 155 police departments about their racial bias training. Here's what they told us.

CBS News contacted more than 150 police departments in big cities across the country to learn more about their implicit racial bias training as part of a year-long look into policing in America.

The 155 police departments contacted include the largest three cities in each state, based on the 2010 census, as well as the District of Columbia, Ferguson and five additional cities that ranked in their state's top three in the 2018 census estimate. Together, these departments police about a fifth of the U.S. population.

- Mesa, Arizona police officers rip racial bias training: "It kills morale"
- St. Louis sergeant: There are white supremacists on the police force

What we found:

- At least 69% reported they do have implicit racial bias training and 57% of those departments said it was added in the five years since Michael Brown was shot to death by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, sparking months of protests nationwide.
- About 59% of the agencies that responded to follow-up questions say they do not have a way to measure the success or failure of those programs.
- More than 70% of the departments we contacted completed our survey and 75% of departments who responded told us that they changed their training practices after controversial use-of-force incidents.
- Of the departments that reported having implicit bias training, 90% say they make it mandatory.

Below is a state-by-state breakdown of what the departments we contacted said about their implicit racial bias and de-escalation training including the average length of training sessions, frequency of training and when they began offering it.
