Webinar Objectives:

  • Discuss some of the historical challenges and recent tragedies between police and citizens
  • Identify key factors and dynamics of community policing and moving from “warrior” to “guardian” mentality
  • Highlight successful initiatives and examples of community policing and engagement and how we can get involved in our own communities


The tragic incidents have led to public outcry, civil unrest and police protests for social change across the U.S. causing the world to take notice in positing the question, "do Black lives really matter?”  This training will discuss and provide community initiatives the two cities took in opening up dialogue and bridging police-community relations leading to positive collaborative change, healing and reconciliation.
