why this course matters today

There is a crisis of trust and confidence in the police along with significant negative narratives.

In the last few years, we’ve witnessed a shift in public perception from seeing police as “good”, to viewing them as  “bad.”   The “defund the police” movement is now part of popular culture along with the poor image of policing in the media.  And all around the nation, there seems to be a lack of national agreement about what law enforcement is expected to do.   

Peace Officer:  Realizing The True Purpose of Policing™ teaches you how to have a police department that works for everybody—the cops, the city and county officials, the police unions and the community members.   With five curricula available for varying law enforcement and community member audiences, this training program explores the mindset for police culture change through the lens of police officers as “peace officers” for policing that’s effective, empathetic and just.
