Strengthening Police and Community Partnerships forum set for October 1

Join us Saturday, October 1 at Ball High School for the Strengthening Police and Community Partnerships program from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. 
Strengthening Police and Community Partnerships (SPCP) is a one-day, in-person facilitated program, which engages local law enforcement and community leaders in a dialogue to identify issues and collaboratively develop solutions that improve police-community partnerships. The SPCP program can be scheduled proactively or in response to a critical incident. It is designed to improve public safety by strengthening trust and developing partnerships between law enforcement and the diverse communities they serve. The program can also help local leaders address longstanding community distrust and other historical barriers which impact police-community partnerships.
SPCP Program Benefits:
📍 Increases local capacity and develops local solutions to local problems 
📍 Empowers local communities to solve local issues
📍 Supports local law enforcement’s ongoing community outreach and engagement efforts
📍 Develops trust and partnerships between law enforcement and the community

SPCP Outcomes:
📍 Increases community capacity by training local volunteers to facilitate future small group discussions between key stakeholders
📍 Assists law enforcement and community leaders to develop a customized action plan that aims to improve trust and partnerships between local law enforcement and the community, and serves as a roadmap to implement tangible solutions developed in the facilitated sessions
📍 Creates an SPCP Council, which works closely with local law enforcement and city officials to implement solutions developed during the program, and advises law enforcement and city leadership on community relations issues
