Specifically the first symposium will examine the evidence for implicit and explicit bias in police behavior. The second symposium will examine the role of decision making in adjudication processes and the third the social psychological underpinnings of punishment, risk of recidivism and rehabilitation. The preconference will include 10-minute data blitz presentations as well as poster presentations from graduate students and new researchers.
