Strengthen Trust and Respect for Law Enforcement

Law Enforcement is under assault.

Eroding public trust and respect has diminished your ability to police effectively and has resulted in polarizing calls for defunding, compounding your challenges even further. Without change, the future of law enforcement as we know it is in doubt, putting the safety and security of our communities at higher risk.

Law enforcement agencies must reimage themselves by transforming from reactive to proactive policing. 

Community Engagement is the development of positive, proactive relationships with community members in a non-stressful, non-enforcement, non-confrontational manner, and should be a priority for every law enforcement agency and municipality.
