Out-of-the-Box ideas for Community Engagement: Lessons for Criminal Justice PIOs

With law enforcement under intensive scrutiny, community engagement is more important than ever before. That scrutiny, however, also bred distrust of police, so old engagement strategies may no longer be effective. This panel discussion will share fresh ideas from leaders in community policing that have proven successful around the country. Most of the ideas you can implement at little to no cost with existing resources. If you’re looking for something beyond coffees with cops and citizens’ academies, you’ll be sure to walk away with fresh ideas to build trust and understanding in your communities.
