WASHINGTON — A new app from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) is now available for download, the NLEOMF announced Wednesday. The Community Alliances and Law Enforcement Bulletin (CALEB) Network aims to build community relationships. The app works as a community social media space to inform citizens about what law enforcement is doing and as a platform for dialogue between communities across the country, according to the release.
“While conversations could take place on social media, we found that there was no real place designed specifically for this type of dialogue on a national scale,” said Thomas Canavan, executive director of the c, in a statement. “This platform has the potential to be transformative if people incorporate what they know and share that knowledge.”
CALEB is supported by DuPont and Thomson Reuters; both companies are represented on the initiative’s advisory board.
“We are excited to further our support through CALEB as an initiative to improve the relations between our communities and law enforcement,” said Steven LaGanke, the Global Marketing Manager for Defense at DuPont. “We hope this leads to sharing ideas and successes around the country."
As part of the platform’s national debut, the NLEOMF is hosting a free roundtable discussion about the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) Program through the CALEB app. The LEAD program aims to improve relationships between law enforcement and the communities they serve.
The free CALEB app is available in your app store or you can sign up for the web platform version here.
