What actions would you take as a Police Officer to insure good relations with the public in the area that you patrol?
Police and community relations are vital to effective policing by law enforcement. You must think of these factors while communicating with the public in your area of jurisdiction:
- Acknowledge and discuss with your communities the challenges you are facing while countering crime.
- Be transparent and accountable, this is the easiest way to establish trust between you and the community.
- Start with small but effective steps to reduce bias while improving cultural competency.
