Departments participating in any of the programs may wish to initiate a custom research study conducted by the New York University public policy institute called BetaGov. Click here for an overview of the research process.
“The studies they’ve done just show it has a positive impact.”Sheriff Leon Lott
In these studies, departments work directly with research professionals to design their custom research study. Usually, the first study is a department self-review. For these studies. tools such as the use of surveys may be conducted of personnel, citizens, and volunteers. The surveys attempt to assess the sentiment of stakeholders such as officers, community members, and students. Then an intervention may be introduced such as the application of the decals or uniform changes. Then a final survey is conducted to gauge changes in how officers are aware of themselves, how the public sees them, and how they engage with one another. Click here to request a self-review.
Why This Program Works
Police2Peace is a research-driven program that is creating demonstrably positive changes in the way communities and police departments engage with one another. We do this by offering programs that shift how officers are aware of themselves, and how the public sees them. This results in a transformation of the safety and security of the community into a collaborative effort.
The program design draws on established social science work including Priming, Language-Augmented Cognition, Social Tuning, Procedural Justice, and Cognitive Resilience Training. Each of these techniques contributes to the successful introduction of PEACE OFFICER into the community’s law enforcement identity.
