Police2Peace ® is a low tech, high impact community outreach program.
We provide departments with a turnkey program to perform a self-review of how the community views the department and its officers, how the officers view the community members, and how the officers view themselves. After that, we offer ways to improve department perception by, for example, introducing the notion of PEACE OFFICER wording in their communities. We do this through the addition of decals to existing markings on public safety vehicles and additions to uniforms. We then generate community-wide awareness of these efforts. Beyond that, we offer a slate of more profound programs the department can choose from. Click here for a complete list of programs.
“Returning to our roots as PEACE OFFICERS is how we operationalize the kinds of changes we are seeing our communities express today.”Chief Jim Bueermann (ret.)
For each department desiring to self-review, we offer custom research studies for the department to assess the impact of the change on how officers are aware of themselves, how the public sees them, and how they engage with one another.
The self-review, PEACE OFFICER identity, and other follow-on programs are designed to enhance community relations and generate greater collaboration with citizens. Out of these programs comes greater peace and harmony in communities through improved police-citizen encounters. Other benefits to departments include greater officer wellness, more efficient recruiting, safer communities, reduced stress, and more job satisfaction. Request a self-review.
The department, city, state, and federal government incur no expense whatsoever for the program, research, and release of the resulting studies.
How It Works
Each self-review occurs in 4 phases:
Phase 1: Preparation
- Study is designed with department team members
- Pre-program surveys are created to assess stakeholders, including officers, community members, students, businesses, visitors and volunteers.
Phase 2: Launch and Announcement
- Surveys are administered to stake-holder groups using online links, social media, printed pamphlets or paper surveys
Phase 3: Program Implementation
- Commencing the trial of the intervention, such as introducing PEACE OFFICER uniforms, performing cognitive resilience training, etc.
Phase 4: Program Conclusion
- Concluding surveys are re-administered to stakeholders to assess any changes in perceptions.
