Police Reform-Community Reform
A comprehensive framework that consists of education, training & development, and accountability for both law enforcement and community.
This issue has many layers and is beyond defunding the police, it addresses appropriate allocation of resources across the board. This includes funds, cultural competency development- which is more than a once-a-year training, instead we’re suggesting a cultural overhaul. Relating to implementing authentic community ambassadors responsible to build police relations with the black community and creating best fit solutions, increasing police presence in areas that feel under-policed, and it includes applying resources for police and public service in surviving the drug use crisis we have in our communities, Mental Health is integral in this administration’s police reform strategy. The community will be able to give consistent feedback as Transparency, Engagement, Accountability, Measurement and (T.E.A.M) are the tenets of this issue.
