Multiple problems face police leaders and their communities today which can lead to breakdowns in community trust
In the last few years, there has been a shift in public perception from seeing police as “good”, to viewing them as “bad.” This has contributed to staffing crises, leaving agencies without skilled, trained, confident officers in their communities. And all of this is occurring at the same time there is a lack of national agreement around what the police are supposed to do.
Peace Officer: Realizing The True Purpose of Policing addresses these challenges through changes in police organizational culture. Offering five conversational, engaging, virtual and in-person courses for both law enforcement and community member audiences, this training program is a one-stop-shop for policing that works for everybody—the cops, the community and the elected and appointed officials. It’s policing that’s effective, empathetic and just.
