Why PDs must open their doors to build community trust
From allowing the public to audit in-service training classes and participate on promotional panels, there are many ways to increase transparency and improve trust
As the policing scrutiny continues around issues such as use of force and broken windows policing to traffic stops and other enforcement operations, communities say they are left out of the loop when it comes to how their local law enforcement agencies operate. Is it time to provide more interaction and transparency in how we deal with policing policies and the community?
On this episode of Policing Matters, host Jim Dudley chats with two experts in the field of police and public policy, Dr. Darl H. Champion, Sr., Professor Emeritus of Justice Studies at Methodist University in Fayetteville, NC, and Chief Harold Medlock who served as chief of police for the Fayetteville Police Department and for over two decades with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. Discussion points include the importance of police transparency, how to conduct meetings with the public and the topics police departments should consider for discussion.
