Abstract:This study aimed to investigate the interaction of stereotype threat, engagement in policing activities, and the typologies “guardian” and “warrior” on officer’s willingness to participate in the programs. Participants were required to fill out an online questionnaire. During data analysis, it appeared that Dutch officers indeed experience stereotype threat. However, this did not significantly impact their willingness to participate in prevention programs. Still, there is an indirect-only effect detected between stereotype threat and willingness to participate. There was a negative relation found between stereotype threat and engagement in policing activities. In addition, a positive relation was detected between engagement in police work and willingness to participate in the program. Hence, the effect of stereotype threat on willingness to participate should not be neglected. There was no mediation of engagement in policing activities on the relation between stereotype threat and willingness to participate. Last, it was found that both “guardian” and “warrior” officers are less willing to participate and higher in stereotype threat. The majority of participants that was not categorized as one of the typologies was more willing to participate in ethnic profiling trainings. Data suggested that the dichotomy, proposed by McLean (2020) is not found in this research.
