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.
