New Toolkit Focuses on Relations Between Law Enforcement and Communities of Color

The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) have released Bridging the Trust Gap Between Law Enforcement and Communities of Color, a new online toolkit of promising programs that includes:
  • Policing for Progress: Law enforcement professionals can work with communities of color to build on trust and understanding while maintaining partnerships that address community concerns.
  • Steps to Building Trust: This section lists steps for executives and command-level officers, frontline officers and community stakeholders to use in promoting communication, partnership and transparency.
  • Sample Community Surveys: These can be used to collect information about public perception, and can be adapted to suit an agency's needs.
  • IACP and COPS Office Resources.
