Our vision is to be a trusted source for policing change, for departments, municipalities, the federal government and civil society. And our mission is to deliver programs and policies in support of a new framework of community policing rooted in PEACE OFFICER.
Further, because we exist at the intersection of policing and peacebuilding, Police2Peace serves as connector and translator for organizations seeking to build bridges with police services agencies of all types nationally. And as a solutions-driven organization, Police2Peace brings expertise to agencies which are redefining, reimagining and advancing policing in America for the purposes of cultural change, procedural change, operational change, and departmental alignment.
Our board members and executives believe that a trusted bridge between policing and communities can be built where departments co-produce public safety with their citizens. Here are the individuals who make up our boards and company.
