Dr. Chad Posick and graduate student Heather (Hatfield) Rogers publish their research “Putting H.E.A.R.T. into policing: a 21st century model for effective and fair policing” in Policing: An International Journal of Police Strategies & Management. This work examines if empathetic practices – similar to those found in the medical field’s HEART approach – can help improve perceptions of fairness at the individual and police department levels with special attention to the dynamics of race. Findings suggest that empathetic and compassionate policing practices can improve perceptions of fairness and legitimacy.
