Resources By Issue - Community-Police Relations
Poor relations between community members and police can lead to feelings of distrust, anger and fear. Citizens may think the police are prejudiced and have unfair policies. Police may feel blame for all kinds of social problems, and think they don't get credit for doing their jobs.
Dialogue-to-change programs help people build the trusting relationships necessary for long-term change. People from diverse backgrounds and experiences develop trust, understand each others' experiences, and work together on solutions.
Una guía para el diálogo público en torno a como mejorar las relaciones entre las comunidades y la policía.
A five-session discussion guide designed to help communities bring police and residents together to build trust and respect, develop better policies, and make changes for safer communities.
