This year has brought an increased number of protests, riots, and violence, making the role that law enforcement has within our communities more relevant than ever before. Each day, leaders from numerous departments, agencies, universities, organizations, and associations across the country work together to learn, lead, and listen for ways to improve policing and strengthen communities.
However, communication of these efforts often falls short: community members are not always aware of steps undertaken to bolster their own communities, while those within law enforcement may miss opportunities to share successes and learn new ideas from their own colleagues. This program will aim to bridge some of those communication gaps by introducing our audience to key supporters from the law enforcement community who will share examples of how they and their organizations contribute to creating safer communities.
During this conversation, our audience will also learn about and will receive an invitation to the new Community Alliances and Law Enforcement Bulletin Network, also known as CALEB, a new social media platform design to foster conversations like this one.
